Chris Brooks volunteers in Puerto Rico
Chris Brooks, co-founder of Remote Energy, will be volunteering with Water Mission in Puerto Rico this month to reconnect communities with existing water pumps. Specifically, the project aims to install solar inverter systems on existing AC municipal water pumps that have not been functioning since Hurricane Maria damaged the electrical power lines. As a licensed electrician, solar installer, and Spanish speaker, Chris is poised to help Water Missions efforts in reviving water access to the local communities. Chris has installed community solar water pumping systems in Africa and Latin America and always does local training while onsite. While there, Chris will be accessing the needs for further training as part of the future rebuilding that will be happening in the country.
Stay tuned for progress reports during and after Chris’s trip.
