ACCIONA.ORG IN PANAMA
In Panama, acciona.org works through ACCIONA Microenergia Panama, a Panamanian nonprofit association with the acciona.org Foundation as a 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, recently we started to provide third generation solar home systems (3GSHS).
In addition, we have extended our network of Centros Luz en Casa, by opening a first shop in Panama, that is owned by a local entrepreneur who manages this business from a reference location to assure spares and technical services of reparation for the systems.
