Architect John Hix Opens First Solar-Powered Resort in Caribbean (Video)

John Hix, the noted Canadian architect and developer of the Hix Island House, the high-design, eco-resort on the Caribbean island of Vieques, has opened what he calls the first totally "off-the-grid," solar powered resort building.

The new six-unit building, called Casa Solaris, is located on the resort complex.

We took a tour of the new complex with Hix who explained that solar power in the Caribbean is feasible to run a luxury facility.

Hix is profiled in the February 20 issue of Newsweek.
