Automatic Power Inverter/Chargers made in the Dominican Republic - Why can't we make them in Haiti?

Automatic Power Inverter/Chargers made in the Dominican Republic - Why can't we make them in Haiti?

Talk about a business opportunity in Haiti, I do not notice a lot of power inverter/chargers and recycled deep cycle batteries for sale in Haiti while in many cities and small towns in the neighboring Dominican Republic, you will find at least one store that that make cheap and new Automatic Power Inverter/Chargers.

This is a great business opportunity, don't you think?

Not everyone can afford to to to Valerio Canez and dish out hundred of dollars U.S. to buy big brand power inverters and brand new Trojan deep cycle batteries.

People with economic problems in Haiti need backup power too. Right?

backup power is something that people in the lower middle class and the poor don't really have access to and no one seems to be taking advantage of that.

So I think it would be a great business opportunity to fix and resell old power inverters and deep cycle batteries especially now that Haitians are more energy conscious.

Hey... Big businessmen in Haiti, why not import the parts? why not start a new business model in Haiti where young Haitians can buy parts and build inverter/chargers to resell to the people. This type of business is all over the Dominican Republic.

Haiti: Sanble Dife, Chabon Bwa - Charcoal burning

Haiti: Sanble Dife, Chabon Bwa - Charcoal burning

Look at this photo... In Haiti this is called "Sanble Dife," the process of starting a charcoal wood fire.

The metal piece holding the charcoal is called a "Recho".

Charcoal as Cooking fuel: Wikipedia says "Prior to the industrial revolution charcoal was occasionally used as a cooking fuel." I guess the industrial revolution has not yet arrived in Haiti because charcoal is still the main cooking fuel in the country.

Renewable Energy in Haiti - Green Energy

Renewable Energy in Haiti - Green Energy

Renewable energy is energy that comes from resources which are continually replenished such as sunlight (Haiti has plenty of that), wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat.

Providing efficient clean energy sources in Haiti would greatly reduce energy costs and dependency on fossil fuels. This is the key to improving Haiti's energy structure.

Presently, Haiti has high-energy costs, low electrification rates, and high dependency on fossil fuels

Charcoal Burning in Haiti - Charcoal as Cooking Fuel

Charcoal Burning in Haiti - Charcoal as Cooking Fuel

Look at this photo, charcoal being burned, charcoal being used as cooking fuel in Haiti. This is how most trees in Haiti end up... ashes in someone's kitchen after a cooked meal.

There has to be an alternative... there are alternatives

Charcoal is Haiti's chief source of fuel and the #1 cause for deforestation and environmental disasters.

As long as Haitians continue to use charcoal for cooking deforestation will continue.
