CONSOLIDATING THE ELECTRICITY DELIVERY MODEL FOR THE AMAZONIA AND IMPROVING PROCESSES TO FACILITATE THE SUSTAINABILITY
Once the first phase of escalation of Luz en Casa Amazonia ended, we are developing a new project to bring our electricity service through third generation solar home systems with prepayment -which is regulated since summer 2018-, to more households by the Napo river basin, as well as other adjacent ones, for which there are not electrification plans. In total, at least 1,000 families will be benefited with this action, and so we exceed 1,400 systems in operation that will give electricity service to almost 7,500 people in Peruvian Amazonian communities.
This action will also allow to improve our procedures, facilitating the sustainability of the action in the long term. Our partner in this project, the Technical University of Madrid, will carry out an analysis and an evaluation of the processes and procedures to boost the escalability of Luz en Casa Amazonia, and it will revise and implement improvements in our service exploitation management system.
Besides those improvements, we have also planned strenghtening our processes to consider international standards related to indigenous peoples rights. This aspect is essential for acciona.org, because we implement our projects in areas with many indigenous groups living in, such as the isolated rural communities in the Peruvian Amazonia of this project.
HOUSEHOLDS WILL HAVE ELECTRICITY SERVICE
PEOPLE WILL BE BENEFITED
