In Haiti, most people do not have the luxury of electricity in their homes. When darkness falls, candles and cooking fires are the only sources of light, and owning even the simplest electricity-powered items is impractical. Without access to electricity, people find it difficult to raise their standard of living.
South Florida Haiti Project sought to address this problem in Bondeau by installing solar panels, the first in the community. This system produces clean, sustainable, and low-cost electricity.
