The inaccessibility to the electricity grid has been replaced with photovoltaic systems. Since 2012, work has begun on photovoltaic systems for homes with a set that includes a 100W solar panel, a converter, batteries, and LED lamps.
The panels remain the property of the SAMT association, which levies a monthly fee.
Each family has solar panels and has been trained on the correct use of the systems.
Thanks to the "clean" electricity, the generators are silent and the evenings at Playitas are quieter.
In 2017, access to photovoltaic energy was extended to the island of Chocote, also without basic infrastructure, which is about 20 minutes by boat from Playitas.
