October 2, 2021 - January 15, 2022

Hybrid Hybrid Event
Free

Este tour contará con centros comunitarios de resiliencia con sistemas solares instalados por el Programa de Capacitación Solar para Mujeres de Bosque Modelo. Estos centros ofrecen capacitaciones en emprendimiento rural y sostenible, ecoagricultura y técnicas de vida sostenible como la recolección de agua de lluvia y la conservación de alimentos. Los sistemas solares instalados son independientes (no interactúan con la red) y tienen un tamaño de aproximadamente 4 kW con baterías de ácido-plomo. El programa Bosque Modelo brinda a las mujeres en el centro montañoso de la isla la oportunidad de ser parte de la industria solar en rápida expansión, empoderándolas así para mejorar sus vidas y ayudar a sus familias y comunidades a ser más resistentes a las fuerzas económicas y climáticas.

(This tour will feature community resilience centers with solar systems installed by the Bosque Modelo Solar Training Program for Women. These centers offer trainings in rural and sustainable entrepreneurship, eco-agriculture, and sustainable living techniques such as rainwater harvesting and food preservation. The solar systems installed are stand-alone (do not interact with the grid) and are about 4 kW in size with lead-acid batteries. The Bosque Modelo program gives women in the mountainous center of the island the opportunity to be part of the rapidly expanding solar industry, thus empowering them to improve their lives and help their families and communities become more resilient to economic and climate forces.)
