GRID is working with KIOCH, a non-profit children's hospital in Nepal, to bring a 31.68kW grid-tied solar electric system with lithium-ion battery backup for emergency loads. This will provide significant monthly cost savings by lowering the hospital’s electric bill and providing critical backup power during power outages.
Bringing Solar with Storage to Amppipal Hospital in Nepal - Limited spots!
Travel with GRID in November 2023 to bring solar to Amppipal Hospital in Nepal. Amppipal is a small village located in the mountainous region of Gorkha district in Nepal. A solar electric system with energy storage will ensure the hospital can keep its critical services operating during power outages and will also lower the hospital’s bill, allowing cost savings to be invested back into the services offered to the 55-110 patients who come to Amppipal Hospital for treatment every day.
In November 2023, travel with GRID to Nicaragua to install a solar-powered drip irrigation system for a rural farm. Travelers will learn about Nicaraguan culture and history on this 8-day trip and will install a complete off-grid solar electric system that brings water to the Luna family, their animals and their crops.
