Title: Solar system on Ustupe Island in Panama
The Energy and Environmental Partnership, including the SICA (Central America System for Integration) and CCAD, has planned a project in cooparation with the Ministry of the Environment of Panama ANAM. Its main aim is to install solar systems on Ustupu Island. This new energy supply will ameliorate the island’s isolation from the grid and improve the lives of the island communities. Yet another positive aspect of this contract is that the communities themselves are trained to handle the solar systems in order to guarantee the sustainability of this project.
