"I'd put my money on solar energy... I hope we don't have to wait 'til oil and coal run out before we tackle that."
-Thomas Edison, in conversation with Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone, March 1931

HARMONY
St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands

Harmony, located on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, is the brainchild of Stanley Selengut. It is the world’s first luxury resort energized exclusively by solar and wind power.



Cradled among the trees, Harmony is an unobtrusive development of eight units, housed in four two-story buildings that showcase sustainable design and materials. Sensitive development was crucial in building this resort. By starting with a small solar system to power the construction, the crew began by building an elevated walkway so as to do the least damage to the existing soil, thus enabling them to wheel all of the construction materials along the walks and reducing further damage to the rare vegetation. With education being a key ingredient at Harmony, Real Goods designed an energy system that is easy to see and understand. During a week’s stay in this luxury resort, guests at Harmony learn the ease and joy of living “off-the-grid.” It turns out that sane development with respect for the earth is not only cost-effective, but also very profitable. Maho Bay enjoys the best occupancy rate and profit margins in the entire Caribbean.


“(Hurricane) Marilyn left Maho in a similar (disastrous) state. But to my surprise and delight, the new Harmony facility was not only unscathed but operating. Its recycled building materials had withstood winds of more than 115 mph. Equally important, its self-sustaining power systems were working. Its banks of storage batteries never faltered and as soon as the storm passed and the sun came out, the solar panels continued to recharge the system.”
