Honduras Projects

 

 

In December of 2014, the first 2 Solar Under the Sun systems were installed in Honduras by a team from Northwest Arkansas churches.  While there, team members (including SUS staff members) were introduced to this beautiful country and to many communities and opportunities for future projects.

El Horno   In December of 2015, a group representing churches from Northwest Arkansas traveled to the communities of El Horno and El Sute to install solar energy systems to power two churches and a LWW water purification system.
El Horno, El Sute, Agua Zarca   This is our pilot "SUS IP" project. It is in the mountains of Honduras, in the small communities of El Horno, El Sute, and Agua Zarca. We have a covenant with these communities to install our smaller 1-panel 12V systems (the "FS-12" system) in a total of 76 homes in the area. The first survey trip occurred in June 2016 and in January 2017 the first 15 systems were installed thanks to a team made up of members from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Misssissippi.
El Sute   In December of 2015, a group representing churches from Northwest Arkansas traveled to the communities of El Horno and El Sute to install solar energy systems to power two churches and a LWW water purification system.
Las Glorias SP-12 Pilot Project   A team gathered from churches from North Arkansas (accompanied by Emily Fausett and Chris McRae of SUTS) are working together with the Mayor Orlando of Trinidad and Operating Partners from Las Glorias to install the new SP-12(single panel, 12 volt) systems to power a group of homes in Las Glorias, Honduras. Las Glorias is a rural mountain community in the municipality of Trinidad that does not have access to conventional electricity and likely never will. This project is being sponsored by multiple churches and individuals, including the mayor of Trinidad who had come to us saying that he would come up with 30% of the cost of a project done in this community.
