Resumen en español al final del artículo
Last August we ran a piece about a large solar installation which a team from Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago, Green WiFi, and Haiti's National OLPC Coordinator had setup at EFACAP school in Lascahobas, Haiti. With the system having been designed and built to power 500 XO laptops it was - and very likely still is - the world's largest single-school solar laptop charging deployment.
Recently I spoke with Laura Hosman, one of the project's leads and an assistant professor at IIT, about another very interesting power-related project her students have been working on. In the process she also mentioned the following 12 minute video which provides a great overview of their project in Lascahobas and is well worth watching:
