Hope for Haiti – Solar Powered Rural Health Hospitals Saving Lives Now

I was pleasantly surprised by the work that Solar Electric Light Fund has been doing with Paul Farmer and Partners in Health. With over 75% of Haitians unelectrified pre-earthquake, it seems that the central command and control utility hasn’t worked too well in the past. With diesel fuel hard to come by, it looks the the solar powered rural health hospital is up and running.

Further, with solar systems able to be up and running almost immediately and at a lower cost today than just 4 years ago, many are buzzing about Haiti being the first country to the repaired using 21st century technologies.
