Recently New York Newsday covered the incredible work that IEEE, Sirona Cares and Nextek Powers System are doing to design, create and deploy much needed solar trailers for earthquake ravaged Haiti.

These trailers will also help bolster the economy by allowing Haitian franchisees to lease the trailers and then charge a small fee to residents to rent the batteries and re-charge them.
