THE STORY:

This August I will be heading to Ghana for almost two weeks. During the Solarize Ghana project, our team of West Africans and Americans will travel through Ghana in the SolBus and install off-grid, solar-electric systems on six schools and four medical clinics in rural communities that would not otherwise have electricity. The project will provide a dependable source of electricity, solar water purification, and cooking systems to each community. With electricity in schools, communities will be able to teach evening classes and dramatically increase the number of students who attend each school. With electricity in medical clinics, doctors and nurses will be able to expand the hours of the clinic and refrigerate life-saving vaccines and medications. Solar electricity will enable each of these rural communities to address their energy needs sustainably, solve energy-infrastructure issues, and build local resilience. Our hands-on education workshops promote local ownership and maintenance of the solar arrays and help ensure long-term project success.
