ABSTRACT
This article reports that the Virgin Island Conservation Society is trying to help lower high energy costs for the U.S. Virgin Islands by promoting the use of renewable power sources. An advocacy group is also promoting the use of solar, wind, geothermal, and ocean thermal energy. The group is especially promoting the use of solar-powered water heaters, since 30 percent of household energy consumption is attributed to water heating.
