    Has anyone thought about utilizing the geothermal potential of Central America? I have heard that Guatemala has a lot of volcanic activity.

Six of us from the States came down to collaborate with this Nicaraguen-based group to implement and promote solar energy projects in rural communities. In the 2 weeks we were here, we installed a solar panel at a church, helped build solar cookers, learned about the theory about photovoltaics and how solar cells and modules work, had a workshop on hydro-electricity, and we even made our own personalized solar-powered battery chargers!
