SEA installed a solar-powered system in the village of Gunchukwa, Colombia, capable of providing power to seven communal buildings. The mission brought “first light” to the Arhuacan people in Gunchukwa. The installation was filmed by Arcos Films and will be used in the upcoming feature-length documentary Switch On to increase awareness of the vast number of people who live with little or no electricity (called energy poverty) and enlighten the public on the issue of lack of energy access.
