NRG Energy announced this week [PDF] that it has completed the first two solar energy projects in Haiti it committed to through the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI). “President Bill Clinton and David Crane, President and CEO of NRG Energy (NYSE: NRG), toured several sites in Haiti’s Central Plateau.” NRG is putting $1 million into solar energy projects in Haiti. “These projects are being done in partnership with the Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF), a nonprofit organization that designs and implements solar energy solutions in developing countries, and include an additional $500,000 pledge from the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.” The first solar project is at a fish farm and “uses 63 PV panels (14,490 watts total) and a battery system to provide 24/7 power under normal weather conditions.” The other project is for solar rooftops on Haiti schools.
