ELECTRI International has received confirmation that the Student Passport Initiative in Roatan, Honduras is now complete.

On March 12th, David Riley, Ph.D., Penn State Associate Professor, Department of Architectural Engineering, forwarded his summary: “Our NECA Student Chapter has about finished the 3kW PV array in Roatan today, supported by the ELECTRI Student Passport program. Tomorrow we will commission the system and have a celebration BBQ with the community of 200 families that will now have more access to fresh water. We appreciate the opportunity to do this good work with the support of ELECTRI. The Penn State students have been wonderful ambassadors for renewable energy in the community, including activities for students at three local schools.”

The ELECTRI Council will get a full report on this project directly from the Penn State Student Chapter when the Council meets in Chicago this July.
