Abstract/Summary

In December 2016, the California Polytechnic State University National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) Student Chapter, along with Construction Management faculty and alumni/industry members, installed a photovoltaic system in San Pedro, Belize. This student-led team won the Student Passport Initiative grant from ELECTRI International, with the purpose of designing and constructing a photovoltaic system for the San Pedro Roman Catholic Primary School, in order to reduce dependence on the grid, encourage carbon neutrality, and aim for net-zero energy consumption. This paper will discuss the preconstruction tasks associated with the project, focusing mainly on maintaining the schedule, the installation of the system in-country, and lessons learned.
