'Loma Larga Granja Solar'
A New Twist in Solar Development
In the south of El Salvador, a new idea is sprouting, with roots in the
Boston area. Jose Aleman will present a development project seeking
input, investment and connections to the Boston Area solar and academic
communities, as well as the support and involvement of our local
Salvadoran immigrant community. His team is well positioned to secure a
government contract for their 5 megawatt PV project called 'Loma Larga
Granja Solar' (english: 'Long Hill Solar Farm').
Their approach is unique, community-based, and quite possibly a new
model for distributed energy development. It opens up opportunities for
many smaller contributors and contrasts with previous projects in El
Salvador, heretofore dominated by large corporate and monied interests.
'Loma Larga' is an innovative work-in-progress and the principals invite
our consideration and input. Diverse approaches (Power Purchase
Agreements, the Solarize Mass program, community solar via virtual net
metering) have been key drivers in the flourishing of solar in
Massachusetts from 3MW in 2007 to nearly 1,000 MW today. Here is an
opportunity to have a first look at a new idea - the Loma Larga approach
- at the February 11th Boston Area Solar Energy Association Forum.
Location: First Parish in Cambridge Unitarian Universalist; 3 Church
Street, Harvard Square
Time: Doors open at 7:00 p.m.; Presentation begins at 7:30 p.m
Jose Aleman is the former General Consul of El Salvador for New England
and a founder and co-owner of a company interested in producing and
selling 5 MW of PV power to El Salvador's government by mid 2017.
