This initiative highlights Solarpack's commitment to education and sustainable development

Solarpack renews its collaboration with the Salesian School Santo Domingo Savio in Chile. The agreement, which has been in place since 2018, includes vocational technical training for the school's students in the installation and maintenance of photovoltaic solar energy systems. This initiative highlights Solarpack's commitment to education and sustainable development.

The signing of the alliance was attended by Jorge Michela Scarlazetta and Antonio González, representing Solarpack in Chile, Priest Néstor Muñoz Candia, Father Director of the Salesian Presence in the Tarapacá Region and Mr. José Rubilar Sobarzo, Rector of the Salesian School Domingo Savio in the parish hall of the school, located in Alto Hospicio, in the Tarapacá Region, Chile.

This project aims to provide the necessary knowledge about solar photovoltaic energy to the school's electricity students and to offer guidance and training for the integration of these young people in vulnerable situations into the labour market. In addition, these students have the opportunity to put their acquired knowledge into practice in Solarpack's solar plants in the Tarapacá Region.

For Jorge Michela, Solarpack's representative in Chile and sponsor of this initiative, which he presented to the Call for Social Action Projects launched by the company among its employees, "This collaboration proves our commitment to the communities in which we operate. Responsibility with training and best practices in the sector, as well as awareness of the fight against climate change, are some of the main drivers of Solarpack's social culture. We will continue to support this type of initiatives and use our experience and knowledge to create value for the local communities.

The Salesian School Domingo Savio, a Catholic school belonging to the Salesian Congregation, is free and inclusive. Solarpack has been actively involved since 2018 in the school's Business Advisory Board, supporting the school's educational management.

One of the activities already carried out by the electricity students in the framework of this project has been the implementation of a solar laboratory in the school, with the support of Solarpack volunteers Antonio González, Nahuel Benjamin Perez Melgar and Juan Carlos Bazoalto Meruvia.
