Energy Education, Product Rebates and Global Warming

April 27, 2007 – Virgin Islands residents can learn about the Energy Office's Solar Sprint Race by tuning into PBS's Channel 12 and Channel 44 this Sunday, April 29. School Days will be aired at 3 p.m., and will be devoted to the recent solar car race held on St. Croix and the upcoming one on St. Thomas.
For residents interested in learning about how they can get money back for energy efficient practices, the Energy Office is holding rebate fairs on St. Croix and St. Thomas. Each fair will have at least a half dozen vendors talking about their products.
The St. Croix fair will be held on Saturday, May 5, in the Sunny Isle parking lot near Wendy's. The St. Thomas fair will be the following Saturday, May 12, at Tutu Park Mall. The fairs run from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., and will include displays of energy efficient appliances as well as alternative energy products. If you are thinking about getting into net metering — sending power to WAPA instead of just buying if from the utility– now is the time to see what is out there.
Nova will be broadcasting a show on solar power, "Saved by the Sun," at 8 p.m., Sunday, April 29, on Channel 12.
