Juragua Nuclear Power Plant was a nuclear power plant under construction in Cuba when a suspension of construction was announced in 1992 following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the termination of Soviet economic aid to Cuba. Russia and Cuba sought third-country financing to complete the plant in the mid-1990s but in 2000 the two countries agreed to abandon the project.
Cuba has over 170 small hydro plants spread throughout the country, the largest being the 43 MW Hanabanilla plant. The small hydro-technical potential is estimated to be 135 MW. The government has drawn up plans for the development of 74 small hydropower plants, representing over 56 MW in capacity (274 GWh).
In Cuba there are already several wind farms in a testing phase, however, the most ambitious of investments in this area is that of the La Herradura 1 and La Herradura 2 parks, a wind generation complex located north of Las Tunas province, with a total of fifty-four 1.5 and 2.5-megawatt wind turbines.
At present, photovoltaic generation contributes about 1.15% of the overall energy consumption in Cuba, with a total capacity of 157 MW. About 151,980 MWh were generated by solar farms in 2018, while in 2019, solar production increased to 241,442 MWh.
