After starting out in 2008 as an energy management and energy control systems provider with the installation of a 30 kW Solar photovoltaic system in the relatively early days of renewable energy in Barbados, Williams Solar today ranks as one of the most experienced developers of solar photovoltaic (PV) projects in Barbados, having installed over 10MWp of solar PV to date. The long list of solar generation systems successfully engineered, procured and constructed by Williams Solar ranges from modest residential premises to large-scale commercial properties, including banks, oﬃces, shopping complexes and factories, in Barbados and the wider Caribbean.
As a subsidiary of the well-respected Williams Industries Inc. company, Williams Solar is able to draw upon over 40-years of group experience to provide clients with tried, tested and proven quality in engineering, procurement and construction. Given that the quality of any Solar PV installation is just as important as the quality of its components, this broad scope of expertise gives Williams Solar a signiﬁcant competitive advantage over similar companies. Recognising that the longevity of their systems provides even greater value for their clients, Williams Solar also focuses heavily on mitigating any potential risks to preserve the life of the system for twenty-ﬁve years and beyond.
The end result is that Williams Solar is fully-equipped to oﬀer complete turnkey PV solutions, individually tailored to meet each customer’s speciﬁc needs. This includes design, project management, installation and ongoing maintenance, as well as advice about energy saving devices and energy management.
As an active member of the Barbados Renewable Energy Association (BREA), which gives the industry one powerful and collective voice, Williams Solar is fully committed to supporting the common goals of the country’s renewables sector. In taking positive action to help the Government achieve its stated goal of 100% renewable energy by 2030, Williams Solar has aﬃliated with the Barbados Community College (BCC) and Samuel Jackman Prescod Institute of Technology (SJPI), to develop a course that will eﬀectively train and certify students with Caribbean and National Vocational Qualiﬁcations (CVQs & NVQs), thereby establishing an improved workforce with recognised qualiﬁcations in renewable energy and solar PV in particular.
Step by step, Williams Solar is powering Barbados towards a sustainable future.
