The Saint Benedict Menni Health Center in Monrovia, Liberia, has started procedures to set up a system for solar power production and accumulation, which will allow for covering most of the energy needs in the compound along with the current diesel generator.
Now, all buildings in Sisters Hospitallers’ facility in Pipeline –Health Center, Sisters’ House, warehouse and guest house, and Step Down Unit– get electric power from a diesel generator which is started only two times a day, due to high fuel costs. The rest of the time, facilities can´t get energy supply, because the current solar panels system is damaged and obsolete.
Totals costs of the system equipment and set up sum up US$ 51,596, which will be allocated from the funds of We Are Like You obtained through donations from individuals and companies, and the aids from private and public bodies.
