Not sure of the solar component (but being Jamaica I can expect that to be even better than wind) but a comparitive installation at Munro gives some idea of the economics.
"The project is estimated to cost US$9 million with
projected annual fuel savings of US$1.7
million (at 2008 fuel prices)."
So with a 20 year life, that project would pay off in as little as five years.
A very good thing for Jamaica which is exposed to the rising cost of importing fossil fuels, while having all sorts of wind and solar energy going to waste..
