Cuba Goes Solar

Cuba has opened up its first solar farm towards renewable energy. It's only going to power some 780 homes in the Cantarrana area but it's a step in the right direction. Cuba tried to gather its energy from off shore oil rigs but that doesn't seem to be paying off.
There will eventually be seven farms such as the one in Cantarrana and it looks like this could be a good source of alternative energy for the Cuban Island.
Cuba receives half of its energy supply from Valenzuela and with the death of Hugo Chavez, they feels that it may be time to look at Solar energy as its back up to oil. Well, good luck with this venture and I hope it works out for you.
