Solar array and BESS will boost the islands’ decarbonisation efforts by fulfilling 30 percent of its energy consumption through renewable sources.

Honeywell has announced that it will provide VIElectron, a CB Loranger Company, its first installment of battery energy storage solutions (BESS) to six solar parks strategically positioned across the US Virgin Islands. When completed, the solar array and BESS will boost the islands’ decarbonisation efforts by fulfilling 30 percent of its energy consumption through renewable sources.

“Honeywell is committed to helping our customers achieve their energy targets and decarbonisation goals,” says Pramesh Maheshwari, President, Honeywell Process Solutions. “This renewable project is an example of how sustainable technologies are helping reduce the cost of energy for the people of the US Virgin Islands and around the world.” 

VIElectron will be enable to install solar panels throughout St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John, all while smoothing out the energy peaks and valleys that can result from solar power.

“As we embark on a transformative journey toward renewable energy, Honeywell’s battery storage expertise aligns seamlessly with our vision,” says US Virgin Islands Governor Albert Bryan Jr., commending this partnership with Honeywell and VIElectron. “It propels us closer to our goal of achieving 30 percent renewable energy consumption in the U.S. Virgin Islands, fostering a cleaner and greener energy ecosystem.”

Complete battery management system that combines an integrated safety system with sophisticated energy controls will be part of the 124 MWh BESS. These capabilities will help enable the U.S. Virgin Islands to forecast and optimise energy usage and costs, ultimately providing more affordable and clean energy to its residents through the 140MWDC solar array.
