Funds will be used for the construction of a solar microgrid that will sustain the “Centro de Apoyo Mutuo de Caquas,” one of the many “Mutual Support Centers” that sprang up after Hurricane Maria.  The center currently provides a community kitchen and a room for health consults but has no electricity;  they hope to have electricity in both the kitchen and the clinic room, add urban garden planning and support, a community radio, a cultural center, and a tutoring center.  The microgrid will also feed solar electricity to surrounding homes.


Once we receive all the funds that come in through June 1, we will purchase the solar equipment (or make our contribution towards purchase of the solar equipment).  The solar company has agreed to sell the equipment at cost.  The entire cost is $60K but if we can raise $10K and 5 other communities do the same, or 10 communities raise $6K each, we will have made a significant contribution to socially and environmentally sustainable development for our brothers and sisters that have been hit so hard by natural and human-made disaster.
