In the Altaramani community in Amazonas, alongside the river Beni, the population density is not high enough to sustain a mini-grid. Independent solar systems have proven to be the best option for electricity access. Solar equipment costs are still high, given the limited market in a country with high electrification rates. Without a specific energy access policy, as well as economic support, the community is bound to remain in darkness for the time being.
