Social Watt is transforming renewable energy into social growth in Brazilian low-income communities.

ABOUT SOCIAL WATT

Social Watts is a socio-environmental project that will provide energy autonomy in low-income communities. With the support of social funders, we install photovoltaic panels in communities so they can generate its own energy from renewable sources. These users can lower or even zero their cost for energy consumption.

Providing a stable, safe and sustainable energy for the residents it's possible to strengthen the fundamental basis of these families. So that they can stop worrying about basic survival needs as well as access to energy and can invest in professional development, studies, technology access and quality of life.

Energy is the basis for accessing diverse technologies, and this can be the engine for social inclusion and financial empowerment for these communities. To carry out the installation of the solar panels we will qualify residents of the community, also creating new jobs opportunities and professional preparation.

HOW IT WORKS?

Social Watt takes care of the whole project: we seek for funding partners, we assist the solar panel implementation, we deal with the community and we take care of the bureaucratic part with regional energy distributors. We use roofs, lands or any other space available with solar incidence to build self-sufficient communities.
