Indigenous tribe living in Brazil’s Amazon Forest switched to solar energy.
The tribe decided to use electricity to support tourism activities. The electricity produced from solar panels will be used for simple purposes such as lighting.
The chief of the tribe, Pinon, said that it is critical for his people that the energy source they use does not harm the forests.
The solar panels were given away as part of a program called “Light the Amazons”. The program was created to promote sustainable tourism.
While tourists visiting Chef Pinon’s tribe may still be surprised to see products like ants in their meals, having electricity will make their lives a little easier.
9 schools in Bolu will meet 20 of their electricity needs with solar panels.
