Empower.vi presents a solution to the U.S.Virgin Island's Energy Crisis. Ben Walter a resident of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands presents a plan to install 300 megawatts of Offshore Floating Wind Turbines directly off the South Shore of St. Croix near the shutdown (February 2012) Hovensa Oil refinery. The planned wind farm can be fully financed solely by redirecting significantly less than the in excess of $400 million that the U.S. Virgin Islands expends on purchasing fossil fuels each year (WAPA $200M and road transportation $200M), which could otherwise finance the capital investment. Fuel costs that will no doubt increase significantly over the coming months, and forever bring uncertainty to the territory as it remains beholden to those who control those resources. O...

This $2.5 Million dollar Yacht parked at the The Yacht Haven Grande Marina in St Thomas Virgin Islands tragically met it's maker. It about made me sick recording this. It looked like a possible galley fire that I thought would be quickly taken care of but as you can see after several minutes it became irreversible. Was a beautiful boat. Video was taken from the 16th deck of the Norwegian Escape.
The main goal of the University of the Virgin Islands' Energy Plan is to reduce the electrical consumption of UVI and insure we meet the goal of 60% reduction on the dependence on fossil fuels by 2015. This goal will be accomplished by using of alternative energy, upgrading current systems, capital investment, and setting up protocols and policies on how the University is going to use its energy.
