This project will be executed by extractivist communities in the municipalities of Santarém (280,000 inhabitants, 40% of which in rural areas), and Belterra (15,000 inhabitants, 60% of which in rural areas). Both municipalities cover an area of 126,058 square kilometers. The rural population, target of this project, lives mostly on the banks of rivers in approximately 800 communities. These are traditional communities, mostly descendants of indigenous and white people miscegenation. Their production is solely for subsistence. Solar energy alternatives will be tested and applied in these communities for minimized environmental impacts and its conservation. This will improve the quality of life for these populations, as well as bring environmental benefits to the region.
