Sea Solar Power negotiating for contract on Virgin Islands

According to the Virgin Island’s Daily News, the OTEC company Sea Solar Power is one of six organisations out of original fourteen that are negotiating to provide power to the Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (WAPA). Within three to five months, the Executive Director of WAPA, Hugo Hodge Jr, estimated they should have completed contracts with at least two of the companies to begin the process of alternative power generation in the territory.
The other contenders offer waste incineration, coal, geothermal, solar and wind. WAPA expects to sign 20-year agreements for alternative energy production in the territory. (Although one wonders how coal power slipped in under that label.)
