We seek to reduce the visual problems that arise from the use of an intermittent light source. In terms of health issues, families will also have access to appliances that allow them to have a balanced diet with vegetable protein that can be refrigerated, as well as be able to store vaccines, antidotes for animal bites, or medicines such as insulin that require refrigeration.
In terms of education, it will allow children and young people to dedicate 2.5 hours more to educational and study activities. In addition to opening up the opportunity to have access to technology that favors education, In economic matters, it will allow families to have 2.5 more hours of light that they will be able to dedicate to productive activities, handicrafts, or work that they could not do before. In addition, families that, for the first time have access to electricity in their homes express a perception of greater security in their properties, which allows them to spend time together as a family.
We seek to contribute to CO2 reduction by replacing polluting sources of lighting and increasing the use of renewable energy in communities.
Project design, logistics and transportation are based on the socio-demographic diagnosis carried out in the aforesaid communities and the knowledge of their energy needs. Based on this knowledge, the design of the isolated solar system will be carried out. Subsequently, the equipment will be assembled and shipped to the communities for installation.
