Solar Suitcase Delivered In Haitian Village of Kwakok

Solar suitcases are solar powered, portable, economic and renewable sources of energy. The product of 'We Care Solar Suitcase' is very effective for remote villages with limited electrical resources.


It includes two 20 watt solar panels, a 15A charge controller, a 14 amp-hour sealed lead acid battery, a phone charger, two headlamps, an AA/AAA battery charger, and a fetal Doppler. Hardware for installation is included in its kit. The students in Anne Soos's environmental studies class at the Hun School of Princeton built two 'We Care Solar suitcases' in the final weeks of their 2014-2015 academic year.

The first suitcase was delivered to a research facility in the Amazon of Ecuador, and the second suitcase has been delivered to the rural village of Kwakok in late June. Now, the multi-purpose community building in Kwakok is able to host varieties of events in the evening hours for students and community members. Kwakok is a poor agricultural village in a remote area of Haiti.
