Some slides provided by project managers
Virgin
Islanders are
meeting the
challenge.
Virgin Islands residents efforts have reduced
CO2 emissions in recent years in the range of
8,500 metric tons. This equals taking 1,750
automobiles off the road for a year.
Eco Innovation installed this 7 Kw system for a
resident on the West End of St. Croix. In May 2012.
It has produced up to 42 Kwh in one day.

Bruce Pittingale outlines various energy efficiency measures that can be taken to reduce fuel poverty, including loft and cavity wall insulation, draught proofing, and double glazing. He discusses the Carbon Emission Reduction Target grants available until 2012 for some insulation measures. Community groups are encouraged to insulate village halls and help elderly residents with energy efficiency. Renewable technologies like solar PV and wind can be installed under the Feed-in Tariff, while the Green Deal aims to fund other measures through energy bill repayments.

The document introduces two solar inventions: a portable solar distiller to produce clean drinking water, and a modified solar PV panel design that generates 30% more power at only 10% higher cost. The solar distiller uses a flexible sheet mirror to concentrate sunlight onto a water-filled evaporation pan, producing 1-2 gallons of clean water per day per square meter. It is portable and low-cost, intended to provide clean water in disaster relief or rural village settings. The modified solar PV panel design places the solar cells at a 45-degree angle and adds a perpendicular mirror to redirect more light onto the cells. Testing showed the design generated 30% more power than a standard panel, while only increasing materials costs

After taking energy efficiency efforts and installing a solar water
heater, Paul Chakroff, right, had installed a 2Kw system hoping
to making his home consumption from WAPA to be net zero.

* This white roof reflects the UV
Rays of sunlight. The inside of
the house is four degrees cooler
since painting the roof. That’s
four degrees cooler than the
ambient temperature. A bonus
feature is that the roof reduces
global warming by sending the
rays to outer space (acting like
polar ice caps).

* This single Solar Panel heats
water for two villas in a
connected system with one hot
water heater. Though we have
an electric backup we are able
to use the solar exclusively for
both villas. The water is very
hot. During a rainy week we will
turn the electric on (one week

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)
Platinum Certification to a newly constructed single family
house owned by Ryan and Kelly (O’Brien) Uszenski in Estate
Nazareth, St. Thomas.
• This is the first LEED certified home built in the United States
Virgin Islands and the Platinum Certification confirms that this
house was designed and constructed in accordance with the
rigorous guidelines of the LEED for Homes Green Building
Certification Program.
• The LEED rating system is the most recognized international
standard for high performance green buildings. Any LEED
certified home is a green high performance home. Higherscoring homes within the LEED rating system earn higher
certification levels (Silver, Gold and Platinum). The high levels
represent exemplary performance.

Social Developmental Theory

Lev Vygotsky was a Soviet psychologist who developed the theory of social development. He believed that social interactions and culture strongly influence child development. According to Vygotsky, learning occurs first on an interpersonal level through interactions with others, then on an intrapersonal level as children internalize knowledge. The theory emphasizes the role of the More Knowledgeable Other and the Zone of Proximal Development in guiding learning. Teachers can support student development by structuring social interactions and guidance within students' ZPDs, including with technology.

St. Croix Avis has
two 20Kw wind turbines

Publisher Rena Brodhurst also has a 10 Kw at her home
in Mary’s Fancy that has produced 33,000 Kwh in 2013
