Princeton Power Systems -- a specialist in the design and manufacturing of technology products and embedded software for energy management, microgrid operations, and electric vehicle charging -- has made moves to expand efforts in the Caribbean and developing island nations, leveraging its base of operating projects in Jamaica, Haiti, the Bahamas, and Bermuda, with an eye toward building collaborations in Cuba.
Haiti is also looking toward expansion of renewables and distributed generation, especially since the earthquake in 2010 that severely damaged its infrastructure and left roughly two thirds of the country without access to electricity. Especially in rural areas, economic and human development is handicapped by lack of reliable electricity, which affects health and safety, and limits opportunities for education and entrepreneurship. In areas without electricity, people often rely on burning kerosene, charcoal and wood.
Princeton Power Systems has worked with Home Control, a specialist in home automation, renewable energy, and audio engineering for residential, commercial, and industrial customers with a focus in the Caribbean and Haitian market, for several years developing the market, and recently launched a distribution partnership enabling Home Control to develop commercial and residential projects with Princeton Power products.
Haiti has a massive untapped solar energy potential, according to a report by Climate Investment Fund. There is high solar irradiation across the nation throughout the year. Solar Microgrids with storage can often be designed, built, and operating in less than three months, making them the fastest way to bring reliable electricity to rural areas. Princeton Power and Home Control have projects operating in Haiti today, and the distribution partnership will allow efficient replication of these successful case studies.
Princeton Power Systems' patent-pending Energy Management Operating Systems (EMOS) and bi-directional converters have been used by many high-profile clients, including microgrids on Alcatraz Island in California and Annobon Island in Equatorial Guinea.environments. Princeton Power Systems builds integrated systems and designs, commissions and operates microgrids for leading organizations including Fortune 500 automakers and industrial companies. It also works with nonprofit organizations. The company proudly manufactures its products in the USA.
Home Control is a company providing home automation, audio engineering, and renewable energy in Haiti. Originally founded in 1990 in Miami, Florida (US), the company relocated to Haiti and has now been in business there for 19 years.
