Non-profit Haitian farm near Port Au Prince

Customer goal:

Expand 10 year old not-for-profit farm to lessen reliance on the diesel supply and to illustrate to the local village what can be achieved with solar power and how to install it.


Off Grid hybrid solar/diesel generator design that utilizes a computer to control the generator to maintain charged batteries when loads are high or the sun is out.

Collectors: Unisolar laminates that are break and theft resilient.

Inverters: Two SMA Sunny Island inverters with Rolls flooded batteries and one 6,000W SMA grid tie inverter feeding the remote “island grid”


System was up and running in 2 days using all local labor except for an engineer sent to down to train and supervise the local workers.
