With the installation of a solar PV system, the facility now has electricity for the first time, and will be able to power lighting, fans, as well as electronic educational materials that expand the school's access to resources and enhance the overall learning environment for the students. This project is the second phase of GRID's effort to bring solar electricity to Juntas de Neji in 2018, and followed the installation of 18 solar home systems that were installed in November. Both phases of the project use Trojan batteries to store electricity generated by the solar panels.
For the upcoming 25 years, the community of Juntas de Neji and their future generations will finally have access to clean, reliable electricity for the first time. Access to electricity for the community and school of Juntas de Neji will dramatically improve the quality of life for residents, create an opportunity to generate income, and greatly enhance the learning environment and educational resources for the local children.
