EA prepares draft legislation for The Renewable and Alternative Energy Act of 2009

Through USVI sponsorship, EA prepared draft legislation The Renewable and Alternative Energy Act of 2009. The draft presented a visionary approach for promoting the reliance on solar energy for domestic water heating and net metering. The Act further envisions that continuing steps will be made by USVI towards energy self reliance and independence. The EA draft was passed into law by the 28th legislature of the Virgin Islands on July 4th 2009.

The bill responds to the global energy crisis as well as to President Obama's objectives to achieve reduction of energy emissions, for governments to lead by example, and for jurisdictions to become energy efficient with the installation of solar systems whenever possible.
