Given the mountainous terrain of the island, expanding the local grid would prove logistically unnecessary with current distributed energy technologies readily available already. On the other hand, the whole electrical infrastructure in Poro relies on diesel fuel, which makes it expensive to expand on that technology. With the ongoing drop on cost of PV systems, installing a solar pumping system makes much more sense than investing in legacy infrastructure. Hence, the most efficient, cost-effective and long-term solution is the construction of a well and solar pumping system. Also, the municipality of Poro has a keen interest in experimenting with solar energy, given the island’s heavy reliance on diesel, which makes up a considerable amount of its expenses. A main driver for this project is the municipality’s enthusiasm in it as a pilot project for future deployment of PV systems across the island.
