Georgia Tech’s IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Student Chapter, led by Electrical Engineering graduate students Jeremiah Deboever, Felipe Larrain, Szilard Liptak, and Ashley Stone, installed the microgrid system to support a newly-constructed health center in remote mountain village of Thoman, Haiti. The health clinic, located about 50 miles east of the country’s capital and largest city, Port-au-Prince, provides health and dental care for the more than 4,000 people living in Thoman and surrounding villages.
