|Ocracoke Power & Light, 1937|
Today we rely on power generated in Virginia for normal usage, and we also have a four million dollar generator on site for use in emergencies. We also have a newly installed microgrid of solar panels and Tesla batteries.

Is there not an effort to embrace Solar panels or Wind turbines. Is The county or the state against alternative sources of energy? I understand electric cars that look like the vehicles one finds ferrying duffers on the links are popular. For a small isolated resort visited by people of means and decisions makers in their fields is it sad that OI is not a standard bearer of Innovative ideas. Does OI have a brand? What does OI bring to the table?ReplyDelete

here we go again with the 'visitors often ask...or visitors often wonder' what kind of empty headed visitors do you get there? i'm on vacation for a few days but I wonder what kind of electrical grid they have here. dah, i'm on vacation myself, I wonder where they get their fresh water...I wonder..ReplyDelete
People who come to Ocracoke are often curious about what it is like to live on an island. Curiosity and creativity go hand-in-hand. We are fortunate to have many such visitors to Ocracoke.Delete
I am one of those visitors and I came to this site because I was asking myself "Hmm...I wonder where Ocracoke gets its power." Thank you, OIJ, for satisfactorily sating my curiosity.Delete
This comment above explains why we need to Make America Great Again. It also explains why we need to allow the smart industrious immigrant into this country. Even Louis Armstong knew it was a wonder-full world.ReplyDelete
