SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

RESPONSIBLE LUXURY

The Reef by CuisinArt is leading the way in energy efficiency in the Caribbean. From inception, the Resort has had its own Reverse Osmosis plant to create potable water for the Resort and island residents.  The Hydroponic Farm, the first in the world when the Resort was built, saves water through the use of recirculation systems and drip irrigation, recycling drainage to feed the outdoor plants.

 

In addition, significant environmental efforts were undertaken to preserve and to enhance the island's natural habitats when the Golf course was built, such as the renewal of Merrywing Salt Pond where the water has been reinvigorated, giving rebirth to its natural organisms. New flushing channels permit seawater to flow out of the pond during high tide.

 

Utilizing Inovateus Solar, our resort has completed the installation of a 1.0-megawatt (MW) solar power generation plant. The solar system uses a battery backup system to store energy. This now provides an uninterruptible supply of energy to the Resort's Reverse Osmosis plant throughout the day to produce over 300,000 gallons a day from the sun and the sea to the residents on the island, guests of the Resort and irrigation water for the golf course.

 

Additionally, Anguilla recently joined the Carbon War Room Ten Island Challenge to reduce the Caribbean carbon impact. Inovateus and The Reef by CuisinArt are pleased to be the first to take a significant, positive step toward renewable energy. The new solar plant saves 1.2 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions annually. Moving forward, development permissions are in place for the next phase, to expand the solar power plant to 3.5 Megawatt.

 

SUSTAINABILITY TOURS

 

Every Wednesday at 11:00 AM, there is a resort tour which includes our PV Solar Farm and Reverse Osmosis plant, guided by our Director of Engineering, Mr. Rory Purcell. Guests interested in Eco Tourism and sustainable development  will be thrilled with Mr. Purcell's vast knowledge and passion for clean energy while they explore the state of the art inner workings of the resort.
