    We have established an online group devoted to rebuilding Haiti. A subgroup is dedicated to Solar,Wing and Wave power. We would like to speak with you or at least get your insight on how we can not only provide Haiti with an interim solution but a new way of providing the island with green energy. Jobs to manuafacture the panels etc in Haiti itself. Haiti can be a source of green energy production to other caribbean islands.

    Please join us at New Haiti Project / Our group is Called Solar Wind and Wave Power.

    We look forward to working with you.
