This paper describes the design and implementation of a solar power system for a school and health center in Petit-Anse, Haiti. The end-use applications are lighting via a set of fluorescent and incandescent bulbs, and a coolbox for medical refrigeration at the health center. The power is derived from five 120W photovoltaic BP Solar panel units. The author and colleagues traveled to Petit-Anse in January 2002, and a final implementation plan for the Spring of 2004, describing budget, team development, and itinerary is described.
