NY Times updates the recovery / rebuilding status.


While a few islands, like St Barts, have written off 2017-2018 winter, others hope to have something too salvage over the next few months.  One hopeful sign is the rapid expansion of solar panels for local installations.  Although the islands get abundant sunshine, solar systems and battery storage has not been widespread in many places. Electric power is often produced by diesel generators, and distributed over antiquated networks.




Dreams come in all sizes, shapes, and colors.
