English: A part of the „Demonstration Project ...

The first part of the program aims to provide solar systems to 500,000 extremely poor households in areas that lack even basic access to the power grid. The project was first started in Contumaza, a province in the northeastern region of Cajamarca, where 1,601 solar panels were installed. The energy minister has said that when the project is finished, the scheme will allow 95% of Peru to have access to electricity by the end of 2016.
