Developing Comonsol Micro-Grids in Guatemala
Development Ventures is piloting the establishment of low-cost community-owned solar micro-grids in off-grid & low-income agricultural communities in Guatemala. These distributed local-utility-scale micro-grids utilize an innovative ‘utility-in-a-box’ business model designed to facilitate local communities to access private-sector impact financing to invest in establishing their own communal power infrastructure.
Two Comonsol micro-grids are currently being developed, both of which can supply productive power to any configuration of nearby consumers that ranges from a few small businesses, to an entire ‘local center’ consisting of hundreds of homes, business and civic buildings.
