Teamwork Allows Punta Gorda to Receive Solar Panels

Two weeks ago, we had the pleasure of hosting a fantastic group of people at Flamingo. We were so excited to be “in the know” of one of the most important projects of our beloved community, Punta Gorda. Now that everything is signed, sealed and delivered, I can give you the scoop.

Penn State and Peacework partnered up with Vegas Electric (a Roatan alternative energy solution company) and the Punta Gorda Town Council, to install a solar system that will help power the community well. This is a very big help, since the cost of electricity is extremely high( four times higher than the average in the U.S.) Penn State and Peacework have been working together for five years. Penn State has been working on Roatan and partnering with communities on the island since 2011.

After the installation of the solar panels, the community now receives water six days out of the week, whereas before it was just three days (Monday, Wednesday and Friday).

Moms who have to wash clothes for the entire family are extremely happy about this advancement. More frequency of water means less dirty laundry throughout the week. Business owners are very appreciative especially during busy season like Christmas or Spring Break.

We’d like to thank David & Lisa Riley and all of the Penn State students who volunteered to make this happen. We had so much fun entertaining you all during those brief breaks that you had throughout the day.  We’d also like to thank Jessica Rice and the entire Peacework team for simply having such an awesome mission and getting it done!

 

Some more info about Peacework:

Peacework started in 1989 with a belief in the power of collaboration to build a better world. They started small, bringing together volunteer engineers from the U.S. and the Soviet Union to Esteli, Nicaragua in the wake of the Cold War to rebuild communities alongside displaced families. In that first project, they learned that the best way to make positive social change is through diversity  of sectors, cultures, and ideas  and they have been doing it ever since.
