The remote, the rural & the Family First Program

Supply & infrastructure of electricity vary significantly in developed versus developing country.  In western world it’s not uncommon to find out a fully electrified nation serviced through smart grid electricity.

Conversely in developing countries even in metros and sub-urban prolonged load shedding is a cliche in daily life. It remains a dream to connect remote & rural areas to conventional electric power supply. An example is Zambales province in Philippines, just within 100 miles of Manila, contains houses outside the reach of grid electricity. Tropical storm, typhoon and flood put power supply in jeopardy. The vast terrains of mountains & ragged coastal lines bring additional accessibility problems.

REEF tries to find out cost effective and sustainable ways relying on alternative energy source to address the challenge.  The Family First Program is the first step to install photo-voltaic solar panel to meet the energy need of the rural households.

  1. Everything posted was actually very reasonable.
    But, think on this, what if you were to write a killer headline?

    I am not suggesting your information isn’t good, but what if you added a headline to possibly grab a person’s attention?
    I mean The remote, the rural & the Family First
    Program | The Renewable Energy Enterprises Foundation is a little boring.
    You might look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news titles to get people interested. You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

  2. Find out how families can now access electricity with solar powered lanterns. REEF distributes these lanterns to qualifying families and families with four or more children attending school they receive a second lanter. Benefits are ability to complete homework at night, parents can add a few dollars more of income with night time lights and with solar lanterns families avoid expensive and unhealthy kerosene fuel. Average savings of 30%.

  3. Hello! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to
    find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!
