Brazil has a lot of sun but uses very little of it to produce energy. HI Brazil wants to take advantage of the renewable energy source by implementing two Solar Thermal Systems in two different hostels. The systems will heat up their water, reducing energy consumption with up to 30% and carbon emissions with 12 ton annually for decades to come. Hostel 7 in Brasilia and Cabanacopa Hostel in Rio de Janeiro will promote and educate their domestic and foreign visitors, as well as their local community, about the positive environmental effects of these systems. Help them become more sustainable and vote now 😊
