NRG Energy Inc. has completed the first project of a new partnership with the William J. Clinton Foundation to bring solar power capacity to Haiti. The 100 kW photovoltaic array and battery storage system was installed at Bernard Mevs Hospital with contributions from SMA, Unirac, Trina and Sunora Energy.
‘The Clinton Foundation is continuing to support Haiti's long-term recovery efforts and sustainable development by expanding clean energy infrastructure,’ says foundation CEO Bruce Lindsey. ‘I'm pleased we've been able to work with NRG Energy on a new, complete solar power panel system for Hospital Bernard Mevs that will enable the hospital to provide quality healthcare for its patients.’
NRG says its partnership with the Clinton Foundation follows the 2012 completion of the company's $1 million commitment made through the Clinton Global Initiative to install solar power systems at a fish farm, a farm drip irrigation system and 20 schools in Haiti.
