Work Safety Best Practices

This project involves work activities that are inherently dangerous. These activities include the use of hand and power tools, working with DC and AC electrical systems, using ladders, and working on roofs. Any person not exercising best practices in these activities will increase the possibility of injury to others and themselves. Therefore all people engaging in these activities are required to know, and practice, best practices to minimize the possibility of accidents. Any person who does not learn and practice these principals will be excluded from these activities.

During the training sessions we will discuss and review the following practices. We will role play to help learn the methods.

  1. Use of ladders: OSHA List
  2. Roof top work:
  3. Electrical Work: Best Practices
  4. Hand and Power Tools
Passport and Visas
 
  • US Citizens: A passort is required. If you do not have one you must apply by the end of November. No visa is needed.
  • Non-US Citizens. You will need a US multi-entry visa attached to you non-US passport. Belize will recognize this in place of a US passport.

Grid Tie Solar Power Systems

Line: 121 to 120
  When the solar cells are not producing power, for example at night, the power is supplied by the mains power grid as usual. The energy retailer charges the usual rate for the power used.

March 2018 Spring Break Trip

This spring break (2018) Professor Robert Alexander and Professor James Skon will be taking a team of students to Belize to work on building Grid-Tie Solar Systems for several schools. This service project will include learning about solar power systems, working with Belize schools, and seeing Belize and experiencing it's culture, environment, history, and people. We will be taking up to 12 Kenyon students.

Grid Tie Solar Power Systems

 Power is expensive in Belize, and schools struggle to pay for the electricity used by their computer labs (it's about the only thing they use power for). After installing computer labs for many years, we decided to explore solar power for schools to reduce their power expenses.

A list of current solar installations constructed under this program in Belize can be found here.

What we do is build "Grid-Tie Solar Systems". What this means is that we generate electricity for the school that reduces the amount of electricity that must be purchased from the electric company. How does it work?

  • The sun shines on the solar panels generating DC electricity
  • The DC electricity is fed into a solar inverter that converts it to 120V 60Hz AC electricity.
  • The 120V AC electricity is used to power appliances in the school.
  • Surplus electricity is fed back into the main grid. (as allowed)

  • The 120V AC electricity is used to power appliances in the school.
  • Surplus electricity is fed back into the main grid. (as allowed)
 Whenever the sun shines (and even in overcast weather), the solar cells generate electricity. The grid connect inverter converts the DC electricity produced by the solar panels into 120V AC electricity, which can then be used by the school.

If a grid connect system is producing more power than is being consumed, the surplus is fed into the mains power grid. Some electricity companies will meter the electricity fed into the grid by the system and provide a credit on the bill.

 If a grid connect system is producing more power than is being consumed, the surplus is fed into the mains power grid. Some electricity companies will meter the electricity fed into the grid by the system and provide a credit on the bill.

When the solar cells are not producing power, for example at night, the power is supplied by the mains power grid as usual. The energy retailer charges the usual rate for the power used.

Computer Labs

IMG_0349.JPG IMG_0338.JPG Lab1.JPG IMG_0890.JPG Kids.JPG
Schools in Belize need Internet connected computer labs to give students a chance to learn to use this important resource. The challenge is to determine what sort of hardware and software make the best sense given the constraints. There is a longer story here, but what this project does is to help build labs with identical used, off-lease, higher end enterprise class laptops. These laptops, which companies lease for 1-3 years, can be purchased bulk from liquidators after the lease, for a fraction of the original cost. Since they are higher end laptops, the reliability is high, and failure rate low.

Legal versions of MS Windows are essentially not available or sold in Belize. Typically what happens is a school will use a hacked version of windows, which quickly becomes mired with viruses and other exploits since the hacked versions cannot be updated. Because of this we have been advocating the use of Edubuntu Linux. This is an educational version of the popular Ubuntu operating system.

Spring Break 2018

March 6-15

A partnership of:

  • Kenyon Department of Mathematics and Statistics
  • Kenyon Environmental Studies Program
  • Kenyon Center for Global Engagement

This project partners with schools in Belize to design, develop and build grid tie solar power systems for schools, as well as Internet connected computer labs.

March 2018 Spring Break Trip

This spring break (2018) Professor Robert Alexander and Professor James Skon will be taking a team of students to Belize to work on building Grid-Tie Solar Systems for five schools. This service project will include learning about solar power systems, working with Belize schools, and seeing Belize and experiencing it's culture, environment, history, and people. We will be taking up to 12 Kenyon students.

Grid Tie Solar Power Systems

IMG_5333.jpg PullingPanelUpSuccotz.JPG StAndrewsMovingPanel.JPG IMG_5258.jpg IMG_5775.jpg
Power is expensive in Belize, and schools struggle to pay for the electricity used by their computer labs (it's about the only thing they use power for). After installing computer labs for many years, we decided to explore solar power for schools to reduce their power expenses.

A list of current solar installations constructed under this program in Belize can be found here.

What we do is build "Grid-Tie Solar Systems". What this means is that we generate electricity for the school that reduces the amount of electricity that must be purchased from the electric company. How does it work?

How-Grid-Solar-power-Works.gif
  • The sun shines on the solar panels generating DC electricity
  • The DC electricity is fed into a solar inverter that converts it to 120V 60Hz AC electricity.
  • The 120V AC electricity is used to power appliances in the school.
  • Surplus electricity is fed back into the main grid. (as allowed)
Whenever the sun shines (and even in overcast weather), the solar cells generate electricity. The grid connect inverter converts the DC electricity produced by the solar panels into 120V AC electricity, which can then be used by the school.

If a grid connect system is producing more power than is being consumed, the surplus is fed into the mains power grid. Some electricity companies will meter the electricity fed into the grid by the system and provide a credit on the bill.

When the solar cells are not producing power, for example at night, the power is supplied by the mains power grid as usual. The energy retailer charges the usual rate for the power used.

Computer Labs

IMG_0349.JPG IMG_0338.JPG Lab1.JPG IMG_0890.JPG Kids.JPG
Schools in Belize need Internet connected computer labs to give students a chance to learn to use this important resource. The challenge is to determine what sort of hardware and software make the best sense given the constraints. There is a longer story here, but what this project does is to help build labs with identical used, off-lease, higher end enterprise class laptops. These laptops, which companies lease for 1-3 years, can be purchased bulk from liquidators after the lease, for a fraction of the original cost. Since they are higher end laptops, the reliability is high, and failure rate low.

Legal versions of MS Windows are essentially not available or sold in Belize. Typically what happens is a school will use a hacked version of windows, which quickly becomes mired with viruses and other exploits since the hacked versions cannot be updated. Because of this we have been advocating the use of Edubuntu Linux. This is an educational version of the popular Ubuntu operating system.

Cost

The trip cost is $2000 per person. The cost will include all transportation to and in Belize, lodging, all meals, and cost of planned activities in Belize (Such as the river boat cruse).
