Photovoltaics Engineers in Remote Places

2015 is The Year Of Light And Light-based Technologies. What project are you embracing?

Here’s a story about a bold idea and a woman that chose a remarkable path for herself and her village.

“Only about 34 per cent of Belize’s largely rural southern region have access to the electric grid. The rest burn kerosene priced at a high $10 per gallon or depend on wax candles and batteries to light flash lights. It is in such villages like Santa Teresa in Belize that Tilonia’s Barefoot College goes to find its women to be trained in solar engineering.”
