Private Sector Financed Community Solar Microgrids and Agricultural Accelerators

Powering Agriculture: An Energy Grand Challenge for Development Powering Agriculture Innovators 2015 wwwPoweringAg

org My name is Monica Stein, and I am the Dean of Research at Universidad Del Valle de Guatemala One of the things we do best is to transfer agricultural technology and train small-holder farmers Through this project we will provide a solution platform for farmers to address two of their most pressing needs: access to financing and access to power We solve this problem by working with our customers to establish a community operated solar grid that they then use to sell electricity to their communities at a fraction of currently available prices They then use the same grid to power an agricultural service facility

This award has been instrumental in helping us UVG has the agricultural training capabilities and our partner has the experience setting up this minigrid and putting these two together really is the innovative part And now we are funded by a wonderful set of donors that we’ve really enjoy spending time with these past 4 days Powering Agriculture: An Energy Grand Challenge for Development wwwPoweringAg
