On April 4th, 2020 we had a fire on the roof of St. Joseph Clinic in Haiti. The fire destroyed solar panels, batteries and other equipment in the roof structure where it was held. Luckily, no one was injured. The fire damaged over $200k of equipment.
Solar panels and batteries have been used to power the Clinic for years. The Haitian national grid only arrived and connected the Clinic in the last few months. Even so, the national grid only provides power a few random hours a day. The Clinic requires consistent electrical power in order to provide medical care. The solar panels and batteries bridged the gap. Until there is a permanent solution, the Clinic is using a diesel generator to provide emergency power when needed.
