TARGETING: Renewable Energy
Mercy Mission is located in Liberia, Africa. They currently house 27 children.
What: an installation of solar panels
Why: Each day, they only have 4 hours of electricity, provided by a generator. The generator currently costs them $5,400 per year in fuel costs and maintenance. The solar panels will eliminate this recurring cost. The installation will provide the home with an average of 12 hours of clean renewable energy per day. They plan to use the money saved from the generator to provide three meals per day to the children as opposed to two, any surplus funds will go to care takers salaries enabling them to stay more committed to the home.
The total cost of the project is $5590.00 USD, including the panels, installation, and wiring.Bookmark the permalink.
