Solar Power Advances in Haiti

Solar Power Advances in Haiti

December 9, 2012: NRG Energy, Inc. has announced the completion of its “The Sun Lights the Way” project in Haiti. The program entailed the installation of solar electric systems at 20 schools, a fish farm and a drip irrigation system supporting agricultural production throughout Haiti’s Central Plateau region, through collaboration with a non-profit organization called Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF). This project helps to improve the quality of education for more than 6,000 Haitian students by providing the electricity needed to power lights, communication systems, laptop computers and other school equipment in remote areas of the country. The project received support from Trina Solar, a leading integrated manufacturer of solar photo-voltaic (PV) products, which donated all of the solar panels installed on the schools.
