The project consists of installing a 100 kW system in the San Antonio nursing home to make it energy efficient. Currently, the home receives no income from the elderly residents (120) and lives on donations. The monthly energy charge ranges from $1,500 to $2,000 per month.
One of our objectives is to work towards creating a better future based on the conservation of the environment and its natural resources, the use of renewable energy, environmental resilience and sustainable livelihoods. We aim to teach children and youth about the importance of using renewable energy and the options it offers in various aspects; professional, labor, social and educational support.
