Solar energy and Internet

In 2002 it has been installed a solar energy system in the Xixuaú village to provide power to the eco-tourism buildings, the school and the office. At the same time we embarked on an ambitious project to install a solar powered satellite internet link up. It was the first system of this type in the Amazon. The satellite connection brought the reserve out of its isolation and into contact with the rest of the world.

With the help of volunteers, adults and children have learnt to use the Internet, accessing resources that help with secondary school education and professional development.
Further solar panels have been installed in 2011 to give clean energy to the new ecoutourist accommodations.
