ACCIONA.ORG IN MEXICO
In Mexico, acciona.org operates through ACCIONA Microenergia Mexico, a Mexican nonprofit civil association established in April 2012, with the acciona.org Foundation as a reference partner.
Its objective is to provide access to modern energy, safe water and other basic infrastructures, to low-income people living in communities where there are no prospects of having those services with traditional means (distribution networks).
It develops its activity acting as if it was a public utility to preserve the project sustainability.
