Solar lighting for Brazil: Audi supporting remote villages in the Amazon region

The Audi Environmental Foundation and Audi do Brasil are jointly supporting the NGO Litro de Luz Brasil, which is supplying solar lighting to three villages in the Amazon region without a reliable connection to the power grid. The primary objective is to enhance education and safety in the villages. The initiative is equipping common areas in the settlements with lamp posts powered by solar panels to make pathways safer at night. In addition, it is providing families with solar-powered hand lamps that can be used both at home and outside the home. They are designed to improve access to education, for example, by enabling villagers to read or complete schoolwork. More than 100 Brazilian families will benefit from the project. Delivery and installation are scheduled for the second quarter of 2022.
