On an energetic level the island turns out to be partially decarbonised (3,8 MW).

To make small installations (<50 kW) make a leap, a tariff compensation mechanism has been developed. Feed-In, which remunerates the production of energy at a fixed price for a specified time. The expected cost of energy savings for the industrial sector is $ 3 million a year. As of 2015, they had applied for the Feed-In scheme 400 users private and 80 public, non-governmental and religious. Based on experience, the extension of the Feed-In system to photovoltaic systems above 50 kW is being examined.
