Off Grid Projects for Belize

March 20, 2003 [] A Renewable Energy Policy Project (REPP) pilot project to provide bundled services to four rural communities in Belize received the official endorsement of the Government of Belize, and as a result moves one-step closer to project development. Utilizing breakthroughs in wireless Internet, REPP intends to pursue funding for the implementation of projects in Belize to test whether providing off-grid electricity, telecomm and wireless Internet service simultaneously is technically feasible and economically replicable. The projects will likely involve the use of photovoltaics to provide remote power.
