Wind Turbine

Welcome to the St Croix Reformed Church Wind Turbine page!

In 2011, the St Croix Reformed Church was awarded a grant from the VI Energy Office and US Dept of Energy for a 10 kw Wind Turbine. 

We broke ground late November 2011 and held our “turn it on” celebration February 29th, 2012.
