The three are designing a mount and control system that will be used by Haitian Christian Outreach on its hospital in Peredo, Haiti. Working through the Campus Christian House at the university, the team will travel with six other Trine students and alumni to Haiti from March 11-18 to develop and provide HCO with a manual to purchase, construct and install solar panels on an expansion to the hospital. The group also will work on the addition. Later this year, other volunteer groups will begin mounting 46 solar panels in order to provide clean power to the HCO campus. (Photo by Dean Orewiler)
