LUTW established its first field office in Peru to serve the estimated 4 million people in the country without access to electricity. While the office opened in 2010, LUTW has been supporting off-grid families transition to renewable energy in Peru since 2004. LUTW has prioritized working with partners in the regions of Apurimac, Huancavelica and Loreto: some of the most remote and underserved parts of Peru. The solar projects are both installation of solar panels and training of local community members often youth to maintain and repair the equipment.

    The solar projects include both installation of solar panels and training of local community members,  often youth, to maintain and repair the equipment.  The panels allow for electricity to be available 24 hours a day making a significant difference in access to light for education, health care and hospitals, and improving quality of life for these rural communities.
