Santo Domingo house

Santo Domingo is slightly less spread-out than Santa Librada, but houses are still far enough apart that individual solar panel systems are the most effective way to provide household electricity. The people are subsistence farmers, growing what they need to survive and making only a few dollars a day. Electricity will provide not only a cheaper and cleaner source of light than kerosene lamps, but also power for other appliances—for example, the radio, which connects them to the outside world.
