In the face of steeply rising oil prices and political turmoil in the Middle East, there’’s a new urgency and enthusiasm for finding ways to make solar power more efficient and affordable. From installing solar panels on homes to massive projects, the solar industry is gaining ground in the US.
The Virgin Islands with its abundance of sun should not be left behind. After the film an Energy Office representative will discuss alternative energy projects in the Virgin Islands.
