Jaluit Atoll

Posted Saturday, December 11th, 2010

30 additional solar refrigeration units have been agreed upon for Jaluit atoll for 2011! The community has decided to participate in the Rural Utilities Service Project and the mayor has signed a MOU with Island Eco. Island Eco is excited about working with a new community as a part of this project.

Also, more refrigeration units are planned for the coming year with interested outer island shop owners from around the Marshalls! This is  an experimental model, as it will involve working directly with shop owners rather than the local government. In order to reach these shop owners and make them aware of the project, and advertisement has been place in the Marshall Islands Journal. See the advertisement below:

Look at our Rural Utilities Service project updates page to see two videos of unloading the equipment for the installation at Utrok Atoll. And find out more on how the other aspects of our RUS project is coming along with the help of the United States Department of Agriculture in order to improve the lifestyle of the Marshallese peoples.

Also, take a look at some of our recent project photos of the equipment and local government partners for the RUS project in the  Photo Galleries.  And be sure to read more about what we are trying to achieve and how we are going about it.
