Let’s Help with Relief to the Bahamas — with Solar and Donations of Other Essentials

ReVision Energy to send solar-powered emergency relief trailer to Bahamas; asking community for donations of hard goods and other essentials
In response to the Hurricane Dorian disaster, ReVision Energy is sending an emergency solar power unit to the Bahamas that will provide 24/7 electricity for lighting, critical medication refrigeration, cell phone and laptop charging, and other emergency power needs. The company  collaborated with other solar companies to send  three identical trailers to Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria, all three of which are now being shipped to the Bahamas to aid first responders and victims.
” Thousands of Bahamians   are without food, water, electricity and shelter, so we are sending an emergency solar power unit filled with disaster relief supplies to help,” said ReVision Energy co-founder, Phil Coupe, who worked with the global disaster relief agency Amurtel and other solar companies on the   industry’s response to Hurricane Maria in 2017.
ReVision Energy is seeking donations of supplies to fill the Maine-based solar power unit before shipping to the Bahamas, including  strong tarps, cleaning supplies, 5 gallon contractor buckets, cans of ready to eat food with flip tops, disposable baby diapers, packages of handwipes and other hand sanitizing items, bar soap, clothing detergent, small towels, band aids, paper products ( paper towels, toilet paper), crayons and paper tablets for children.
Donations can dropped off at ReVision Energy’s Brentwood, NH location, 7A Commercial Dr, Brentwood, NH 03833 during regular business hours, 9am-5pm Monday-Friday.
Designed by solar energy engineers from companies in the  www.amicussolar.com  national co-op, the emergency solar power unit is an enclosed trailer with six photovoltaic panels and eight deep cycle batteries that feed a total of 30 electrical outlets (two in each gray cubby) on the exterior of the trailer so people can plug in devices and appliances that need power.
Below is the unit, currently located at ReVision’s HQ in South Portland, that is going to the Bahamas:

Cash donations from a group of New Hampshire-based Rotary International groups helped pay for the trailers and batteries, while the solar panels and construction labor were donated by ReVision Energy  and other Amicus solar companies in the northeast. The original effort was called “Power on Puerto Rico” ( https://www.facebook.com/PoweronPuertoRico/).
