ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – The BVI Electricity Corporation (BVIEC) has announced that it is now in a position to ‘Go Green.’

As such, the company is inviting residents of the Virgin Islands (VI), “wishing to install distributed generation renewable energy systems” to obtain applications in order to become compliant with the relevant Acts and Regulations.

This, according to a public statement which said, “persons with existing renewable energy systems must submit applications in order to bring these systems in compliance the Act and Regulations.”

Approval has since been granted for grid-tie connections for customers with solar and/or wind Electric generating facilities of 50 kilowatts or less, or 500 killowatts and for customers installing energy storage paired with such generating facilities.”

Applications can be downloaded from the BVIEC's website, bvielectricity.com or uplift a hard copy from branches located at Long Bush, Road Town or Virgin Gorda.

    using solar is like planting on a sifter, highly in efficient unreliable and a waste of money and energy on all fronts. please reconsider. don't waste your money on old tech proven to be a total waste on all levels.

    Could someone tell us if the BVIEC have net meters already in their warehouse?
    The meters at our houses can not net meter and what about the grid tie issues? Will some of us be able to be completely off the grid like some of our sister/brother islands?
