Solar projects continue in rural Haiti

The construction of solar projects in Haiti continues. The initiatives are part of a $1 million commitment to build solar energy sites in Haiti by U.S. power generation company NRG Energy, nonprofit Solar Electric Light Fund and the Clinton Global Initiative.

So far, a 63-panel project at the Lashto Fish farm has been installed. Renewable energy runs a fish tank air filtration system allowing for increased production.

The project aims to provide clean and inexpensive electricity to be used for fish farming, irrigation pumps, streetlights and schools. The project was announced in September 2010, after a massive earthquake rocked Haiti.

The project also targets solar installations for at least 20 schools, including the Bon Berger du Domond School. Bon Berger du Domond uses a 12-panel (2,760 watt) installation to power lights, computers and an electric piano, enabling the school to teach adult literacy classes and serve as a community center at night.

Solar installations are also planned at facilities operated by the nonprofit health care organization Partners in Health.

"Solar energy can have a tremendous impact on the revitalization of many communities in Haiti. The facilities toured today demonstrate how solar significantly improves people's lives," said Bob Freling, executive director of SELF. – EcoSeed Staff
