Station A of the Clifton Pier Power Station was proposed and constructed following criticism of a longer term plan for a larger plant because of urgent energy needs.[5] Station A was built within nine months and began operating in December 2019.[5] The power station is run by seven Wӓrtsilӓ 50DF engines.[5] As of 2020, the Bahamas Power and Light Company was in the process of working on the contract for a transfer to Shell.[6]

As of October 2020, Shell was still slated to finalize the 225 MW power plant. with construction scheduled to begin in 2021 on Station D, and an intended start date of full operational power of 225 MW in 2023.[4] Part of the contract with Shell will include the transfer of Station A (and a proposed Station D) to Shell for their complete ownership of the units operating at Clifton Pier.
