Project Spotlight

St Thomas USVI Solar Project

In 2011, the Virgin Islands’ first large-scale solar project went into operation. The Virgin Islands Port Authority, Energy Office and Water and Power Authority partnered on this project and funded the $3 million project with federal stimulus money.

The 448 kilowatt solar system, one of the largest solar power projects in the Caribbean, will generate as much as 15 percent to 20 percent of the airport’s energy consumption.
