THE first phase of the Commonwealth Healthcare Corp.’s solar initiative project has been completed, but it has not been providing power to the hospital yet, CHCC Hospital Emergency Preparedness Director Warren Villagomez said.

Due to Covid-19 issues, he added, there has been a slight delay in the installation of the interconnection transformer.

He said when everything is ready the solar power project will supply power to the intensive care unit, emergency room and the operating room of the hospital.

Due to lack of funds, CHCC divided the solar power project into three phases.

In 2018, CHCC received $560,000 from the U.S. Department of the Interior for  phase 1 of the project.

“We are working with Interior and with other funding sources to move forward with phases 2 and 3,” Villagomez said.

CHCC Chief Executive Officer Esther Muna said funding from Interior allowed them to seek other sources to complete the project.
