21 are being housed upstairs on one of the C.C.R.C school buildings. The other 2 will be mounted at the Community Health Center after the rainy season have past.
The Caye Caulker Village Council is very grateful for this project as the children of the school will now have drinking water. Each panel makes about 10 liters of drinking water daily and in the event of a hurricane the island will have a constant supply of drinking water. We would like to express gratitude to the following individuals and organizations:
Mrs. Enelda Rosado and the past Caye Caulker Village Council for commencing this project
Sara Valero and Gerard Alleng from the Inter-American Development Bank, who is providing the financing for the regional Caribbean Climate Smart Islands Program
Eddie Herrera from the Belize Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation, who is the official counterpart of the IDB for the regional Caribbean Climate Smart Islands Program
William Schew from the consulting firm Environmental Resources Management (ERM), who is the firm contracted by IDB for the implementation of the adaptation component of the Caribbean Climate Smart Islands Program
Lucas Gana from the Belizean firm Caye Solar who led the installation of the hydropanels and will be in charge of maintaining the system for the next 5 years.
The team at Zero Mass Water, the technology provider for the Hydropanels and who supervised and coordinated the installation
Mrs. Chan from the Caye Caulker Roman Catholic School and her teachers
Thank you all for collaborating and making this pilot project a reality.
