This initiative contributes in the reduction of petroleum consumption, ensures the availability and sustainable energy supply, meets the long-term energy demand in the country, brings together other strata of the population that currently don’t have access to commercial energy sources and promotes the development of renewable sources and diversifies the country's energy matrix.
The Republic of Panama, for being a country close to the equator, it has solar radiation levels that favor its use throughout the country. This effect allows the use of renewable energy sources more efficiently, including industrial and commercial heating processes that usually make use of traditional fossil fuels, thereby reducing the flight of capital.
