Earlier this month the co-founders of STI partnered with Longwood University on an adventure to Grand Turk Island located in the Turks and Caicos Islands.  The mission of the trip was to educate and train college students about solar power and wind energy and how both would greatly benefit the area.  Residents on this island are paying five times more than people in the United States for electricity; therefore, utilizing this renewable energy would be a huge development for them.
