Follow-up One Response to “Expat M’rat home-owner suggests cost saver alternative energy to geothermal” Chris Lynt says:

I have been told that the information I presented above was discussed with a member of the energy committee on Montserrat but was “discounted.”
Therefore, I would like to point out that it was based on information from a wind industry informational web site which states that the “costs for a utility scale wind turbine in 2012 ranged from about $1.3 million to $2.2 million per MW [mega watt] of nameplate capacity installed. This cost has come down dramatically from what it was just a few years ago. Most of the commercial-scale turbines installed today are 2 MW in size and cost roughly $3-$4 million installed.”
(see: http://www.windustry.org/resources/how-much-do-wind-turbines-cost)
Of course, an off-shore installation in the tropics might reasonably be expected to cost more than the average $1.3 to $2.2 million to install for numerous reasons.
