UVI Produces “Powering Through a Blackout”: Alternative Solutions to Power Outages

The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) Caribbean Green Technology Center (CGTC) is pleased to announce the release of “Powering Through a Blackout,” a resource guide for energizing various devices and tools for instances when power goes out. 

“We Virgin Islanders are no strangers to frequent and prolonged blackouts, and we are always on the lookout for affordable solutions to keep the lights on,” said Greg Guannel, director of the CGTC. “To fill this gap in demand for resilient solutions, we created a guide to offer a series of comfort and life-saving solutions for powering through blackouts.”  

“These solutions can fit a variety of budgets and situations,” Guannel added. “Ideally you want to invest in a solar and battery system for your house, but this is often out of reach financially for a lot of us, or even impossible if we rent. The guide provides solutions at different price points that can build resilience and fit your needs”.
