A Solar System for Silar’s Orphanage, Port Au Prince Haiti

soraSora Edwards-Thro, a college freshman, used her 2014 Christmas break to install a solar system which she designed, funded, purchased, and installed.  60 full time residents, and perhaps 200 additional day students will benefit from 24/7 access to “Internet In a Box” wikipedia, and various online resources provided by 3G internet access which she installed. These instructional resources are now available via 20 XO laptops, which can now be charged by  via her new solar system, and a low voltage distribution system which she manufactured on site.

For additional information, and a case study of all facets of a successful solar installation see: https://schoolserver.wordpress.com/power/solar-power-for-silars-orphanage-a-case-study/
