Amigos de Jesus has been blessed by the opportunity to incorporate solar energy at the hogar. In January, a team of local men traveled to Honduras to install the solar panels and set up the system. Dave and Steve Santoleri, board members and owners of TerraSol Energies (http://www.terrasolenergies.com/
), worked with us to design and implement a system that would be most efficient for our needs. This first project with generate enough power to run our well. Frequent power outages result in a lack of water as the on-site well is run by electric pump. This is the only source of clean water for the home. This solar project will save energy costs and ensure that the children and staff have consistent access to clean water supplies. Thank you to Dave, Steve, Tony, Matt, Jeff, and Danny for your time, expertise and love for the children of Amigos de Jesus!
