In 2004, Bella Energy installed the solar pumping and electrical system for Conservation International on Foengoe Island, in the middle of Suriname. The 6 kW solar power system provides AC power for lights, and major appliances (fans, refrigerators) for a visitor center, two lodges and homes for the staff. The three-story, 150-foot-long visitor’s center is the largest building ever constructed in the interior of Suriname. Overlooking dramatic rapids in the Coppename River, it features state-of-the-art potable water and septic systems. This project meets the highest international, environmental, and conservation standards for ecotourism facilities.
