ST. MICHAEL, Barbados – 9 November 2020 – MPC Caribbean Clean Energy Limited has announced today that RBC Trust (Trinidad and Tobago) Limited, a subsidiary of RBC Financial Caribbean Limited, has committed USD 10 million to the company. RBC Trust made this investment on behalf of its managed clients’ accounts. The feeder-vehicle was established to enable local investors such as pension funds, insurance companies, or credit unions to participate and benefit from the energy transition in the region and invests the capital into the MPC Caribbean Clean Energy Fund LLC.

The conditions for the use of solar and wind power in the region are excellent. With the impact of COVID-19 on the region and the growing demand for low-carbon power supply, we are determined to invest in the transition to clean energy infrastructure in the Caribbean to make it more resilient and independent. The private sector plays a crucial role in mobilizing capital for investment and job creation, and we want our activities to help promote green recovery.”
