Haiti - Technology : An orphanage 100% solar
Texas-based Freedom Solar Power recently installed an off-grid solar system for A Child's Hope Orphanage in La Montagne, Haiti which did not previously have electricity.

Freedom Solar Power recently installed an off-grid solar system for A Child's Hope, an orphanage with Texas connections in La Montagne, Haiti that did not previously have electricity. The completed 20-kilowatt solar array and battery backup now provide a sustainable source of electricity that meets 100 percent of the orphanage's electricity needs.

"Thanks to the new solar power system, we're now able to light our facilities. The ultimate goal is to make the orphanage self-sustaining, and solar power was the critical first step to achieving that mission," said Raleigh Jenkins, founder of A Child's Hope, the nonprofit that built the orphanage.

"The new solar array also powers the aquaponics farm we're currently building at the orphanage, allowing us to raise fresh fish and grow nutritious, organic produce. And the project will ultimately allow us to refrigerate or freeze that food so the children have a constant, reliable source of food. It's a life-changer," said Jenkins.

Freedom Solar donated the labor for the project, and SunPower donated the solar panels. Freedom Solar also paid for additional costs for the project including international customs and trans-oceanic shipping costs for equipment. The estimated total value of the project is $100,000.
