Our Solar Power Workshop is a yearly group project, where we invite foreign and local participants to learn about Solar Energy.
We donate and install solar systems to rural schools that are located off-grid. We educate the local community about solar power, system maintenance, and we teach our participants how to make solar panels themselves by hand!
As a participant in our Solar Power Project you will gain an understanding of the basic principles of photovoltaic power and solar panels. You will receive theory and practical lessons on solar energy. We will make panels from scratch and install solar systems. We will also install solar systems on one or two of the places we will donate the solar system to (varying locations throughout the Osa Peninsula).
We will also have time for fun activities, and we will take the group surfing, hiking, dolphin watching, snorkeling, and kayaking.. there is time for work and play during the 2-week course.
