Government power has not yet been run to the community where MERCY HS is located. This has limited the ability to offer a high-quality high school education in the most effective manner. Government power is VERY expensive, and the service is inconsistent. Solar power offers an inexpensive and reliable source of energy for powering lights, pumps for fresh water, power for computers and teaching aids, etc.
A firm in Mt. Laurel, NJ, with experience in African countries and specializing in the design of solar power systems, has designed a complete solar power system to meet the needs of Mercy High School and on campus staff housing.
Total system cost with installation is $40,000. This would supply 100% of the power for Mercy High School and staff housing residents current and future needs.
