By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On February 21, 2024, Punta Negra in Southern Belize became the 5th community to receive photovoltaics.

Through the GEF Small Grants Programme – Belize in partnership with the Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labour and Local Government, Plenty Belize, Belize Power Connect Limited, Toledo Institute for Development and Environment (TIDE), the Belize Coast Guard, and #UNDPinBelize, 12 homes, 6 businesses, and 1 school in the village now have access to solar energy.

“Throughout Belize, projects such as these have been transforming remote and rural communities, over 15,000 Belizeans, to receive clean energy, contributing to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda specifically, #SDG7, #SDG11, #SDG15 and leaving no one behind,” the United Nations Development Programme noted.
