ELECTRI International has received confirmation that the Student Passport Initiative in Honduras is now complete. In 2014, Penn State's NECA Student Chapter team received a $20,000 award from ELECTRI for winning the 1st Student Passport Competition in 2014. The students travelled to the island of Roatán in early March to install a 3kW PV array for a community water pumping station.

David Riley, Ph.D., Penn State Associate Professor, Department of Architectural Engineering, who supported the team in its efforts on site, complimented the achievement: "The Penn State students have been wonderful ambassadors for renewable energy in the community, including activities for students at three local schools." 

The ELECTRI Council will get a full report on this project directly from the Penn State Student Chapter when the Council meets in Chicago this July.
