GivePower Deploys Solar Water Farms in Haiti (La Gonâve)
GivePower, a non-profit organization that provides solar energy and clean, affordable water to people who need it most, has deployed two of its Solar Water Farms in La Gonâve, Haiti.
GivePower partnered with World Hope International in Haiti who supported the project with a $250,000 donation as well as a variety of corporate and individual donors who helped fund the project.
"We are living in very challenging times and it's especially important to ensure communities have access to reliable, clean, affordable water to stay healthy," said Hayes Barnard, Founder, Chairman and CEO of GivePower.
Powered entirely by solar energy and battery storage, GivePower's desalination systems are housed in 20 foot shipping containers and capable of transforming 70,000 liters of brackish and/or seawater into clean, healthy drinking water every day.
The Haiti facility, which became operational in late May, quickly drew long lines as the community registered to buy water.
