The U.S. Virgins Islands will be home to 49 MW of waste-to-energy capacity by the end of overnite tramadol 2012, the first alternative-energy project for the tourist destination and levitra shop on line a solution to its excess waste problems.
Alpine Energy Group just released its plans to develop two waste-to-energy plants on the islands for a cost of $440 million. A 33-MW plant will be built on http://www.peseta.org/obtain-viagra-without-prescription St. Thomas, serving both that island and St. John. Another 16-MW plant will be built on St. Croix.

Construction is set to begin next May.
