The lack of electric energy is a reality in many communities of Western Pará and is a roadblock to the socio-economic development of riverside residents, in addition to affecting their quality of life. As such, PSA also works to provide rural electricity access as part of the Active Forest program to support the Forest Economy.
Through partnerships with private entities and public bodies, PSA presents electricity solutions adapted to the reality of off-the-grid Amazonian communities: implementation of custom-made photovoltaic systems and training of residents for the proper use and maintenance of these systems. As a result, polluting, expensive, inefficient, and unreliable diesel-fueled generators have been replaced by systems that use sunlight to power lighting, pump water, refrigerate food, and connect televisions, radios, and the Internet.
