Sustainable Beach Bars – Sunshine Powers Anguilla’s Sunshine Shack

Tagged: , , , , ,

If there was going to be a beach bar powered by the sunshine, it would make sense that it would be Anguilla’s Sunshine Shack. Located on Rendezvous Bay, the Sunshine Shack recently had some solar panels installed by Comet Solar. Citing a need to avoid unsightly power lines, Garvey Lake, the owner and soul of the Sunshine Shack, stated in the article at Going off Grid on Anguilla:

“I really did not want to run electric lines out to the beach and spoil the view. Now that I have the ability to store energy for nighttime use and have power during the day to run the business, I am ready to go.”

  1. Thanks so much for your article on our recent install. Looks like it is up and running and providing Sunshine Shack with nice quiet power. Let’s hope in future more remote beach bars stop using generators and consider the solar solution.

    • You’re more than welcome, Jo-Anne! I agree – the solar solution is a much better option. If you do anymore of these, please let me know and I’ll help spread the word. Cheers!
