Impact on the local communities
At the Adams solar park, an agrivoltaic development project was launched in partnership with Lean Herbal Incubator, a program that promotes growing herbs in line with local tradition for various purposes, including cosmetics, medicinal products for personal use and eco-friendly household cleaning products. The program also provides training for a number of local residents concerning the benefits of certain herbs and how to develop a business activity. The initiative has contributed to the development of 21 women’s cooperatives in 15 villages in the region. We’ve also installed solar-powered wells in one of the villages to ensure an adequate water supply.
In addition, thanks to the Micro Grid project, it has been possible to install solar-powered microgrids to meet the energy needs of a local school.
