This is great! Why are there not more wind turbines on the island. Especially now in the setting of the plant closing? Do some build newer homes with solar panels? Are some folks able to be "off the grid" this way?

You can see a video of the turbine and click on a gallery of ceremony photos at www.stcroixreformed.org

Just before closing the ceremony, Pastor Koopmans said while pointing down La Reine Hill towards Hovensa,
"Down the hill we can all see Hovensa. They are no longer producing energy. ....We are."
It gave me shivers.

Jeff Cabrera, Mayan Windpower. 340-690-3300. He'll have his website up early next week at www.mayanwindpower.com

Jeff is an experienced installer and has worked on big and small turbines for some time. He isn't just a salesman. He understand the technology, and getting it done right.

Disclosure: I've become friends with Jeff, and I was the volunteer project coordinator for the church that installed the turbine.
