A practical and sustainable way to try and keep Haiti’s hospitals functioning 24/7.
Unfortunately, it looks like locals did not have much to do with the installation of the solar panels, although the article does’t really say.

P.S. “In Haiti, electricity is expensive: The price per kilowatt hour is 35 cents, compared with 5.5 cents in New England.”
