Mitsubishi Electric, their local distributor, Dr. Cool, and the V.I. Energy Office conducted a seminar on Sept. 2 to introduce to the industrial, commercial and residential markets the latest in cooling/solar technology with focus on energy cost reduction, LEED efficiency and overall energy management. It was well attended by community members from the private, business and government sectors.

The USVI, while making strides in lowering the territory’s energy cost, is constantly looking at alternatives and best practices to further reduce the cost of energy. Mitsubishi Electric is the leading provider in the cooling/solar technology industry and demonstrated their wide-ranging energy-efficient product line focused on significantly reducing electrical use and associated costs. The presentation was very technical and informative with an emphasis on the many advantages of the Mitsubishi product line of ductless, variable speed compressor cooling products. Mitsubishi introduced case studies from subtropical environments around the world where large government infrastructures had been outfitted with Mitsubishi cooling systems and realized tremendous monetary and environmental savings.
