Solar / Wind Installation Sources - Virgin Islands

Looking for any recommendations on sources for having Solar and Wind generators installed on a fabricated arch for a 36' sail boat. I'll be around the US and British Virgin Islands and would like to know if any decent sources are know.

If not I guess I'll have to make it to Martinique where I understand several good sources exist. Let me know if you have recommendations on any one at either location.

I would instead use Island Water World in the lagoon at st. martin.
They carry Kyocera panels and several brands of wind generators and all the installation stuff. They are also duty free. Here is the index to their catalog on line so you can see it for yourself.

I prefer the Kiss wind generator myself. Don't use solar panels yet. The Kiss generator is reasonably priced, under $1200 including the mounting brackets, not as noisy as most of the others, and the quality is very good. Good Luck
