This is an outsiders opinion and rating of the overall situation at WAPA that is fairly accurate in reporting and easy to understand.

WAPA officials must have pulled the wool over the eyes of ratings agency. Maybe they forgot to mention how many companies and home owners are switching to renewable energy. The only future I'd like to see for WAPA is bankruptcy.

Just curious as to what benefit you think this would be to the USVI?

And those of us that cannot afford to switch from WAPA to renewable energy?

"system energy requirements declined 11% for the period 2008 through 2012, largely due to retail conservation efforts driven by the increasingly high cost of electricity"

I think part of the reduction in energy requirements mentioned here in the article are from customers changing to renewable energy.
