2016 Student Passport Competition
As of August 21, 2017

The ELECTRI Council awarded the 2016 Student Passport Initiative to California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.  The Cal Poly Student Chapter instaledl a complete and operational photovoltaic array for the San Pedro Primary School, Ambergris Caye, Belize. This project was originally designed by (the late) Professor Tom Glavenich and his University of Kansas NECA Student Chapter members. The primary school had 34.5 kV power provided via submarine cable from mainland to island with supplemental power provided by diesel generators.

The goal of the Cal Poly Student Passport Initiative was to reduce dependence on the local electricity grid, encourage carbon neutrality, strive for net-zero consumption, build teamwork and better a community.
