Past Projects & Partnerships
We are excited to be involved in many projects throughout Haiti. Here is a glimpse into just a handful of our past projects...
In 2018 DigitalKap completed its first solar microgrid in partnership with EarthSpark International. This microgrid has an operational capacity of 160kW and will provide power to the approximately 20,000 residents of Tiburon, Haiti. The system was built with SMA technology and utilizes a remote monitoring system, allowing the microgrid’s operations to be monitored from anywhere, 24/7.
St. Raymond School Computer Lab & Solar System
U.S. based Holy Trinity Catholic Church contracted DigitalKap to install a brand new solar powered computer lab at St. Raymond School in Ansedeno. This computer lab features thin client technology that dramatically reduces the power needed to support the lab as well as the physical space required. The lab can facilitate 30 students at one time. The solar system installed by DigitalKap at the school not only powers the computer lab but also the entire school, a water pump and provides enough energy to support incoming earning printing services at the school.
Solar Street Lights & Charging Stations
DigitalKap worked with Digicel and Habitat for Humanity to complete over 200 solar street light and charging stations in the area of Canaan. The charging stations allow residents to charge their phones for a small fee. The fees that are collected are then used towards continued maintenance of the lights/charging stations.
OFATMA Hospital Aux Cayes
DigitalKap was contracted by the Government of Haiti through the Office of Occupational Accident Insurance, Sickness and Maternity (OFATMA) to install a 20kW solar system at the OFATMA Hospital in Aux Cayes, Haiti. This system provides power to the newly opened dialysis center at the hospital.
NRG Energy Partnership
DigitalKap was engaged in a long-term partnership with NRG Energy, one of the top solar companies in the world, to bring solar to Haiti. DigitalKap installed 300 kWs for NRG, allowing NRG’s beneficiaries to save up to $189,248.40 a year on energy costs. These beneficiaries are projected to see up to $4,177,452.00 net savings over the life span of their systems.
In 2014, DigitalKap partnered with Digicel Foundation to install a 2.5 KW solar system at Ecole Nationale Charles Moravia in Jacmel.
Later in 2014 DigitalKap worked again with Digicel Foundation on a 5 KW solar system at Ecole Grande Savanne in Saut D'Eau.
Founded in 2011, the National School of Grande Savane was the last to be selected by Digicel Foundation to complete its goal of building 150 schools across Haiti.
