    Even before a magnitude 7M earthquake demolished Haiti’s infrastructure, only 12.5 percent of the country’s population was connected to the power grid. After the quake, diesel fuel became even more difficult to get and more expensive. The generators that ran the country’s power supply fizzled out as Haiti waited in the dark for help. Almost a year after the quake, which rattled the nation on January 12, 2010 solar is shining a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Organizations have donated thousands and thousands of solar LED lights ranging from individual hand-held solar lanterns to residential lighting systems, streetlights and security lights, and on to major solar installations in schools and clinics. Other non-profit organizations have shipped solar cookers to Haiti so women can cook meals without using polluting coal or wood stoves inside their homes. Companies have also shipped several solar water purifiers to Haiti, an increasingly important tool in light of the country’s recent cholera outbreaks. Read more.

The renewable energy company based in Rockville, M.D. sells wind power through the grid in those eastern states that allow energy companies to compete for utility business and it has existed since 2005. Solar cookers are cheap, simple, and easy to maintain. By harnessing the abundant power of the sun, solar cookers provide a measure of independence to those who use them—and they decrease a user's reliance upon traditional sources of cooking fuel like charcoal, which is costly and very polluting," Clean Currents president Gary Skulnik was quoted in a press release. Clean Currents giving program launched Nov. 23 and will go through Jan. 12, the one-year anniversary of the tragic earthquake that left the island nation devastated. Read more.
