Virgin Islands Add Battery Storage

The installment of battery energy storage solutions (BESS) in six solar parks across the U.S. Virgin Islands has begun. The solar array and BESS will boost the islands' decarbonization efforts by fulfilling 30% of its energy consumption through renewable sources.

Honeywell will provide the BESS. VIElectron will install solar panels across St. Thomas, St. Croix, and St. John.

"As we embark on a transformative journey toward renewable energy, Honeywell's battery storage expertise aligns seamlessly with our vision," said U.S. Virgin Islands Governor Albert Bryan Jr., in a statement. "It propels us closer to our goal of achieving 30% renewable energy consumption in the U.S. Virgin Islands, fostering a cleaner and greener energy ecosystem."

The 124MWh BESS will include an end-to-end battery management system that delivers advanced energy controls with an integrated safety system. These capabilities will help enable the U.S. Virgin Islands to forecast and optimize energy usage and costs through the 140MWDC solar array.
