This weekend we hosted the Island Institute’s annual Island Enery Conference for a field trip out to Star Island. The group toured Star to look at our innovative sustainable energy initiatives including our solar array and water filtration systems. Thank you to the Island Institute for including this trip – we hope everyone enjoyed it and took something away from the visit to bring back to their island communities.
Here are some scenes from this weekend’s trip:
