Buffalo Business First: Solar Liberty Foundation aids Haiti school

Solar Liberty Foundation aids Haiti school

Solar Liberty Foundation has donated and installed a 4-kilowatt solar power system to the Grace School and Orphanage, in Ile-à-Vache, a small island off the coast of Haiti.

The solar system is an off-grid battery back up system that will power the school for 400 students throughout the year and the nearby orphanage.

Prior to this system, the school, orphanage and village did not have any power.

The school now has sustainable power for lighting, computers, refrigeration and Internet connectivity. The solar power also supports a water filtration system that provides bacteria free drinking water.

Buffalo-based Solar Liberty Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on helping improve the quality of life for people in less developed nations through renewable energy resources. The organization provides people in need with solar electrification, solar water filtration, and solar cookers.
