VIEO Presents Award and Workshops During Energy Education Week

March 23, 2009 – Gov. John P. deJongh Jr. has proclaimed March 22-28 as Virgin Islands Energy Education Week. The Virgin Islands Energy Office is the lead agency in celebrating the 29th anniversary of the week designated in the territory to highlighting and encouraging responsible and efficient use of precious energy sources.
To begin the week, VIEO will present the 2009 Vincent D. George Light the Way Award to Stacia Boswell, VMD, of the Sugar Mill Veterinary Center. Dr. Boswell was selected because of her dedication to energy efficiency and renewable energy technology as demonstrated by the wind turbine, PV and solar thermal systems installed at the veterinary clinic, according to a press release from The V.I. Energy Office.
The presentation is scheduled for 10 a.m., on Monday, at the Sugar Mill Veterinary Center, Estate La Grande Princesse, Christiansted, St. Croix.
In another highlight of the week, VIEO will conduct one-day training workshops for facility managers in central government. The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., on Wednesday, March 25, on St. Thomas; and on March 26, on St. Croix.
Throughout the week, energy office staff will visit schools on St. Thomas and St. Croix to give educational presentations about energy issues.
