GSI has successfully installed six solar PV systems in the city of Yabucoa, Puerto Rico, which survived the recent hurricanes and continue to provide electricity to the buildings and export daily excess to the grid. We are currently fund raising toward a September 2023 installation date for a seventh system situated on another Government Emergency Distribution Center.
GSI completed a project with the US Department of State to design solar PV systems with battery storage for four US embassies in the South Pacific at Koror, Palau; Apia, Samoa; Majuro, Marshall Islands and Kolonia, Micronesia. The Koror, Palau embassy is the first US embassy to be 100% electrical energy independent powered by solar PV. Note that the article mentions the next three net zero embassies also designed by GSI which as of November 2022 are in the construction phase.
In addition, GSI has provided on-site assistance to the University of Maryland “Engineers Without Borders” group with two installations in Ghana and visited Tanzania and designed 20 rural health care systems.
Please suggest a Project to us as we are looking for new partners and projects. Either send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or enter your data into the Suggest a Project or Partner data entry form and GSI will contact you.
Kenya: GSI is raising funds in order to partner with the Canadian non-profit “Free the Children” to install solar power on a Girls Secondary school that they built in the Narok South District of the country.
Every effort will be made to include our volunteers on overseas trips. To see where you could be going, please view the following pictures by country: Haiti, Tanzania, South Africa, and Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
