ACCIONA.ORG IN PANAMA
In Panama, acciona.org works through ACCIONA Microenergia Panama, a Panamanian non-profit association(*) established in 2018, having the acciona.org Foundation as its reference partner.
Our objective is to bring access to modern energy to low-income people living in Panamanian rural communities, where there is no prospect of having that service with traditional means (distribution networks). With this aim, we provide third generation solar home systems (3GSHS).
In addition, we have extended the Centros Luz en Casa network to promote that local entrepreneurs with small shops in reference locations offer proximity attention to the beneficiaries.
