In many villages situated in the remote areas of Mendoza, Argentina, people still have little or no access to modern energy services. Electricity is often only generated by expensive diesel powered generators, which cause pollution and usually provide energy for only a few hours per day. This project aims to address these gaps by harnessing the potential wind power in the region. Four small 1.5kW wind power systems will be installed in the village of San Carlos, Mendoza. The main project activities include the installation of the wind power systems as well as training the users and technicians.
