Solar Power Project Volunteer

COSTA RICA / Green Life Volunteers

INTRO: Are you passionate about renewable energies? Would you like to learn more about solar energy? Would you be interested in helping to get power to off-grid remote elementary schools in Costa Rica? Then you should participate in our Hands-on Solar Power Workshop on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica.

DETAILS: The workshop is a mix of solar-power-theory and a hands-on practical workshop part. You will gain an understanding of the basic engineering principles of photovoltaic power, and you’ll even learn how to build your own solar panels from scratch. You’ll also participate in a solar-Install of a solar system on an off-grid rural school on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. We will also visit other off-grid solar locations during the workshop, where you can see and feel what it is like to live purely “solar powered”. The workshop also includes local Costa Ricans, who’ll participate in some aspects of the workshop!

VOLUNTEER DUTIES: We ask of our participants to actively take part in the theory and practical lessons, and help us with the installations of the solar system. We also include a visit to the local high school and we ask from our participants to actively help plan the high school visit and teach high school kids about solar energy. We also include locals into our daily practical and theory classes, and we would appreciate that participants help us to teach locals about solar energy.

FEES: The two week program is 1200$.
