On May 21, 2015, Rachel McManus stood at the podium of the United Naitons General Assembly to announce the EarthSpark and Enèji Pwòp joint commitment to build 80 microgrids in Haiti by 2020. This commitment, made as part of the U.N. Sustainable Energy for All forum, will bring electricity to over 200,000 individuals.
Going from one grid to 80 grids is no small challenge, but the EarthSpark and Enèji Pwòp teams are looking forward to working with the Government of Haiti, local mayors, and a variety of local partners to get it done.
