What does it take to install a solar panel?
James Fischer, PCP’s Director of Economic Development, recently returned from Congo with this amazing step-by-step report and photos from the Lead Technician, Gaspy Zongalinga. (shown at left, President Mboka hands Gaspy some new tools needed to install the solar panels on clinics).
After crossing oceans, navigating rivers, flying over jungles, and surviving sometimes treacherous Congolese roads, solar panels are finally delivered to a team of local technicians. Seven steps are required from preparing to turning on the lights. Enjoy the slideshow to see how our fabulous solar installation team installs the first 60 solar panels on clinics.
