The Cooper Island Beach Club Is Even Greener

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - April 22, 2017

One of the Caribbean’s greenest hotels is even greener.

The British Virgin Islands’ Cooper Island Beach Club boutique hotel now has more than 270 photovoltaic solar panels powering the resort.

That has saved over 875,000 lbs of carbon emissions to date.

Even better, the green energy powers the Caribbean’s only solar-powered microbrewery, producing five different varieties of draft beer that change seasonally.

The Beach Club also has a bio-reactor that turns waste water into irrigation water, allowing the property to grow more of its own organic produce.

Of course, the property’s rum bar is reason alone to visit.
