Who We Are
Wigton Windfarm Limited, a subsidiary of the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ), is the largest wind energy facility in the English-speaking Caribbean. Located in Rose Hill, Manchester, the wind farm currently comprises three plants, the 20.7 MW Wigton I, which began operating in 2004 and Wigton II, an 18 MW extension facility that was commissioned in 2010.
As a clean energy facility Wigton’s operations contribute to efforts to preserve the environment and mitigate the effects of climate change. Wind energy generation provides a viable alternative to traditional fossil fuels which cause greenhouse gas pollution.The clean energy generated by Wigton reduces Jamaica’s oil consumption by more than 65,000 barrels each year.
