In 2015, GRID Alternatives installed a solar system in the only school in the community which teaches children up to 6th grade. While having the school system has brought a source of power to the community, installing solar systems in 14 homes will bring the benefits of solar power directly to families. Having a clean, reliable source of electricity in their home will allow families to have high-quality lighting for evening reading and studying, use basic kitchen appliances and charge electronic devices. With these systems, families will have better access to news, communication, entertainment, and income-generating opportunities.
