Helping to develop community wind power in Peru

Onawi has signed a memorandum of understanding with the community of La Tortuga, Peru and the NGO Tropico Seco to work towards community wind project in their town. We are very excited to be working with them to investigate the options, including the possibility of using open designs and assembling the turbines in the region. In March we will be starting a community dialogue on the ways forward and the installation of anemometers which will provide wind data whilst the dialogue is ongoing. The installation will involve local people and we will train them in the maintenance of the anemometers.

We are currently raising funds for the project.
