The Sun and the Calm Return!

The past few weeks have been very hard on Roatan’s tourist industry. With the “riots” and roadblocks news reaching us in the north, things seem much worse than they were before, but in fact the situation is better. The power is on, but patchy in some areas, and the roads are clear. A friend told me that while in a cab to French harbor they had no trouble getting through a roadblock in front of the RECO plant.

The bad weather that had covered the area lifted this week and once again the island is a glistening gem. The good weather I hope will stay with us for a good while, five weeks of solid rain AND the whole RECO business is enough to drive someone mad!

The New Website’s a Riot!

While we wait and see what becomes of the situation on “the Rock” as some call it, Roatan a blossom of the third world currently very short on kilowatts! As a result of this we at Evergreen have sent down a new batch of catalogs and sped up the refurbishment of our aging website. It is largely done and you can order a system now using paypal! But thats not all! We have a half dozen new system bundles specially priced and designed for the tropics! To get everyone off the grid! just like paradise was supposed to be like!
