PPP for Energy Efficiency and Solar PV in Schools, Jamaica

The problem

Jamaica had an opportunity to cut energy costs in schools by installing rooftop solar photovoltaic systems to generate electricity on site and installing more energy efficient equipment. However, neither the schools nor the government department responsible had the funds or expertise needed.

How we helped

We designed and helped to implement a Public Private Partnership (PPP) to bring in a private company to finance, install and maintain the equipment, and to get paid on the basis of electricity costs saved. To this we carried out a technical, economic and financial feasibility study, prepared a business case, drafted all the transaction documents, helped the Development Bank of Jamaica manage the competitive tender process, and assisted with negotiations.

Impact

The tender was successful and a winning bidder has been selected. The project is expected to benefit 30 schools by providing lower cost solar electricity and savings for energy efficiency, making this Jamaica’s first privately financed energy efficiency and distributed renewables project for public buildings.
