Solar Energy For Haiti?

Post by Gelin_ » Tue Feb 01, 2005 2:51 pm

Even though Haiti <I>ap bat dlo pou fè bè</I>, the country has a lot of natural resources (or what's left) that could be used intelligently for the common good. Solar energy is a good example:

[quote]Solar Energy Basics</B>

Sunlight—solar energy—can be used to generate electricity, provide hot water, and to heat, cool, and light buildings.

Photovoltaic (solar cell) systems convert sunlight directly into electricity. A solar or PV cell consists of semiconducting material that absorbs the sunlight. The solar energy knocks electrons loose from their atoms, allowing the electrons to flow through the material to produce electricity. PV cells are typically combined into modules that hold about 40 cells. About 10 of these modules are mounted in PV arrays. PV arrays can be used to generate electricity for a single building or, in large numbers, for a power plant. A power plant can also use a con
centrating solar power system, which uses the sun's heat to generate electricity. The sunlight is collected and focused with mirrors to create a high-intensity heat source. This heat source produces steam or mechanical power to run a generator that creates electricity.

Wouldn't that be great if Haiti's gorgeous sunlight could be converted into electricity from the highest mountains to the deepest valleys......?

Ni oun biten kè plen moun rejioun karayib la pa konnen, se kè nan plen ti zil e sitou pa si kote Gwadloup, nou gen oun gran how-know nan zafè enèji solè a, men malerèzman, jan sistèm la fèt la, li ka penalize oun lo moun rejioun an piskè yo pa janm eseye devlope oun koperasyoun rejional pou enterè a moun nan zòl lan.

Men fòk nou sav, kè si gwadloup gen plen sosyete ki mete si pye de aplikasyoun nan enèji solèy, men yo ka alimante sitou mache entèn la, e plen moun pa konnen ègzistans yo.

Se pa yenki nan domèn enèji solè la kè pe gen koperasyoun men menm o nivo edikasyoun inivèsitè e òtr, gen de pwòp nèg ki gen biznès adan sa, men malerèzman, oun biten ki touche mwen oun lo, se kè pa gen oun echanj o nivo tala ant se de peyi la, alòs kè tin oun lo biten a fè.

Widy:

Se on gwo avantaj Ayiti ak lòt peyi karayib yo genyen ak bèl solèy cho kap klere byen klè. Eske ou gen adrès moun gwadloup/matinik ki gen konesans sou kesyon itilize enèji solèy la....? Ou ka fè-m konnen?

Mwen ke voye sa ba ou men mwen konnen sitou ta si Gwadloup e pou matinik mwen pa sav ki biten yo ka fè ègzaktèman.

Sa mwen sav tou, se kè enèji tala gen oun cost o debi li, piskè fòk yo achte materyèl spesifik pou fè-y mache men si oun lon tèm, li pli rantab ki electrisite.

Gen de moun gwadloup, tout enèji yo itilize ka vini dè solèy, kèkswa pou limyè, dlo cho...etc.

Mwen peke oubliye voye de twa adrès ba ou.

Kenbe

An attempt at making good use of the solar energy in Haiti:

[quote]MONTREAL (AFP) - A 65-year-old Montreal woman was reportedly kidnapped in Haiti and threatened with execution by her abductors if her family does not pay a 300,000 US dollar ransom.

The woman, whose name was not released at the request of the family, was in Port-au-Prince for six months <U>to help launch a solar-powered telecommunications business with her Haitian husband</U>, according to Quebec's LCN network.
