Solar Array for Puerto Rico

In the Fall of 2019 Solar Village Project will be partnering with Footprint Project, MADR and The Rock Spring Congregation installing a 5kw solar array for a community center in the Bucarbones community of Puerto Rico. The community center is run by CAMBU (Centro de Apoyo Mutuo Bucarbones Undio), a grass roots community organization that was formed after hurricanes Maria and Irma devastated the island. The CAMBU community center hosts a wide range of activities from art classes to health fairs. The solar array that will be installed will allow the community center to be operated on 100% solar power helping to ensure that CAMBU can continue to provide much needed support for the communities it serves, including a community kitchen, learning center and a computer lab. This is SVP’s first full scale domestic project and we look forward to working with many of the other grass roots community oriented organizations that sprang up across the island in response to the hurricanes. This project is being funded by the Rock Spring Congregation of Arlington VA, through their Green Accelerator Program, which has a mission to help combat climate change and promote sustainable energy throughout the world.
