Fish Hatchery in Palau Uses Solar Power from Alternative Energy, Inc.

posted on July 15, 2016

When Dr. Jim McVey, the CEO of Indigo Seafood, began planning for a hatchery in the island nation of Palau, he faced a unique challenge. There is no "grid" to which the plant could connect for vital functions such as air blowers and water pumps. Consequently, he began exploring potential off-grid power solutions and became acquainted with Alternative Energy, Inc.

SUNRNR a Solar Solution

After working with Alternative Energy, Inc. president Bill Finch, Dr. McVey selected a SUNRNR generator to power the plant. Because of the unique circumstances, the pair had to work to create a custom solar solution involving a pump with a variable speed starter and extra solar panels to handle the plant's needs.

Recently, Indigo Seafood completed installation of the solar system and the hatchery is now up and running.

"All the pumps and solar systems are here in Palau. Fish cages are in the water. The Seabees are helping us install everything. It is very exciting … the whole island is excited about the project," Dr. McVey reports.
