The last step is to put a marker for your project on the Project Map.  After navigating to the full version of the map, click "EDIT" to begin and then drag a place-marker to the location of your field project.  Then click on the place-marker and add any summary info you'd like into the popup window. To close the loop, be sure to include a link from the marker text back to your post (here) so people can learn more if they initially find your project via the map. Hint: to get the exact URL to your map location, while you're viewing the text panel that goes with your place-marker, click on the "Send" option.

  • Project name: Quetsol pay-as-you-go pilot 
  • Dates: March 2013- August 2013
  • Location (town/city/country & Map Link): San Vicente, Alta Verrapaz, Guatemala
    • Contact person: Alex Place (me)
  • Organizations involved: Quetsol
  • Sponsors: n/a
  • Number and type(s) of lighting systems deployed: 50 Quetsol kit 1 have been deployed for the pilot.
  • Photos:
  • Project description and results: Quetsol is seeking to have systems with keypads. Customers buy day, weekly or monthly (12$) codes from small store. Then they punch the codes into their system and the system is functional for those days. This is a rental model which lowers customer's out of pocket expense, allows them to switch to bigger systems and comes with a full guarantee on service-- very hard as the communities are very off-grid and hard to get to.
