an objective that we have is also to Educate for the awareness and the change of behavior that leads to a more sustainable future and a more just and equitable use of the resources of Santa Cruz de la Sierra. a solution to save on the electricity from the use of solar panels. But although this does not seem too novel, the truth is that I sought the process to obtain a "Solar Subscription" Why Bolivia? Bolivia is interesting for a service like this for several reasons. One is that the energy has been managed by the government for a long time, so the prices of electricity are high. And it's a pretty sunny country, so solar projects are cheap, sometimes at half the price of what would be paid elsewhere. "

How a solar subscription works A solar subscription is the best way to have access to clean energy. With a fixed monthly rate, you will have clean energy without risks or initial investment. In particular, the business model consists of private investors financing the purchase and installation of solar panels in homes and then leasing their use to homeowners. In this way, the investor earns his money in the energy generated by the panels, while users save between 20-30% in the first year. It should be noted that the price of the leasing of the panels is fixed - it would not go up together with the price of energy -, so that the savings of the users would be increasing. our proposal is to implement solar panels on 500 roofs Although we are just beginning, the future plan to expand to Chile and Brazil
