It takes thousands of dollars to run the Be Like Brit orphanage each month. To eliminate their electric bill, they have decided to switch their energy intake by adding solar panels to Be Like Brit.
This worthwhile project will cost $65,000. Granite City Electric in Worcester has spent the last six months designing a 30 KW solar project to BLB. Once installed, the solar system, in conjunction with a battery back up system, will provide 100% of the electrical needs of the orphanage. This is not only financially responsible, it will help save the planet!
Granite City Electric is generously donating a 22ft box truck this summer to transport the materials to Miami port and then to Haiti. Also a big Thank You to Solect in Massachusetts for donating a generous amount of solar panels, and sending two workers to come and install them in Haiti! The installation date for the solar system is the last week of August. Please help them accomplish the ambitious and worthwhile goal!
Solar Panel $400
Double Battery $200
Single Battery $100
Roof Bracket $50

‘Roots on the Road’ is back from Haiti! Take a moment here to read BLB’s weekly blog, where you will learn how the week went, and get to see all the beautiful children of BLB, doing yoga and sharing and giving all of their amazing love. See an inside look of the orphanage and outside villages and the people and organizations that are collaborating with BLB to enrich these lucky children’s lives. http://belikebrit.org/2014/05/18/yoga-and-more/ It was an incredible and humbling opportunity to meet the people of Haiti and to see all of the great things that are happening at BLB to keep Brittany Gengel’s dream and memory alive! Roots will be planning some benefit classes soon to help support BLB, their children and the community in Haiti!
