The solar panels were installed by Swimsol Maldives, a global leader in offshore photovoltaics with more than 22 years of experience in the European solar industry.
Daniel Reinhardt, Sales, and Partner Support Manager of Swimsol, said that “Swimsol is very happy and proud to have installed it’s to date largest solar systems at Sun and Paradise Island, which will jointly save more than 1 million liters of diesel and 2,600 tons of carbon dioxide each year.”

The solar panels will supply the resort with power and reduce annual diesel consumption by 411,077 liters and carbon dioxide by 1085 tons annually, which is the equivalent of the emissions of 868 flights from Male’ to London. The substantial amount of energy generated is sufficient to power 135 villas across the resort daily.
