On the Ground in Haiti: Solar Prospects
CEO Matt Petersen is in Haiti this week with President Clinton and members of The Clinton Foundation, where we are working on ways to bring solar power to our partners there. Matt publicly announced today that The SunPower Foundation has generously pledged to provide 100kw of solar PV to help power the schools and other community facilities we have been partnered with the past two years, since the devastating earthquake. The Clinton Foundation will work with Global Green to identify an additional partner and project in Haiti in the coming weeks, as well as other opportunities to expand the use of solar in the country.
Global Green's local partners, who are already designated to receive solar to provide clean energy for projects include: Cine Institute, Artists for Peace and Justice, Habitat for Humanity, and Heifer International. More here on our work in Haiti.
