Challenge

Puerto Rico is in desperate need for power. We would like to do our part and provide as much power to them as possible with solar. While we are sending some ourselves we would love to get others involved in helping and make this a statement to the world on how you power back up after a natural disaster.

Solution

Phase I - "Solar-Powered Communication Charging Stations" ($10,000-20,000) Impediment to the recovery effort is the inability to communicate and coordinate. These stations will provide each community a location to gather and charge their cell phones. Phase II will be solar home kits to help quickly get as many people as possible access to light and air in their homes.

Long-Term Impact

Subject to change as needs and resources change, our focus will first be on these smaller rural communities : 1. Adjuntas 2. Aibonito 3. Barranquitas 4. Castaner 5. Ciales 6. Comerio 7. Florida 8. Jayuya 9. Lares 10.Las Marias 11.Maricao 12. Morovis 13. Naranjito etc.
