Commitment to Action

Solar Energy for Housing and Education in Rural Mexico

Commitment by

Ilumexico

In 2014, Ilumexico committed to installing 1,500 solar home electricity systems and 22 solar school systems in impoverished areas of rural Mexico. Through this commitment, Ilumexico seeks to address the lack of distribution channels for energy products and services to rural populations and allow these populations to purchase solar home systems with the assistance of adequate microloans. Ilumexico will provide solar equipment, including computers and lighting, to rural schools that are currently without electricity and will provide training programs to ensure long-term sustainability and bridge the gap between urban and rural educational tools.
