BMR Energy is a Renewable Energy company backed by Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Investments.
They have the combined expertise of 10,000 MW of energy infrastructure projects, and are developers, owners and operators of clean energy facilities.
BMR Energy is a company that is dedicated towards increasing the use of renewable energy sources within the Caribbean and Latin America; particularly as Hurricanes Irma and Maria have both left many of the islands in the Northern Caribbean considering how to build resiliency into their grids in light or the disruption to power supplies. BMR Energy is well placed to help drive this conversation forward as they themselves specialise in this type of delivery.
BMR Energy through its subsidiary BMR Jamaica is currently operating a US$88.9 million wind farm, high in the Santa Cruz Mountains of St Elizabeth, Jamaica. Under the 20-year purchase agreement, this 36.3 megawatt (MW) wind farm sells to the JPS Grid at 12.9 US cents per kilowatt hour (KW).
