The wind Farm, which will add three megawatts of electricity to the national grid, is the first to be operated by the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS). It has four wind turbines, which are built to withstand up to Category 5 hurricanes. Sharing the moment (from second left) are JPS Chairman Tomofumi Fukuda, president and CEO Damian Obiglio, and Valentine Fagan, vice-president of generation expansion. (Photo: Aston Spaulding)
