Bringing light to those without

Brian Barr and 17 members of Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives recently took a trip to Guatemala on a mission to bring electricity to two small impoverished villages.

During the trip, Barr served as the project’s documentarian, taking photos and video of the groups effort.

While there, the group constructed distribution lines and installed all electrical services, meters, main panels and internal wiring to more than 140 households in the villages of Las Tortugas and San Jorge.

As a part of the project, each household also received a water filtration system, so the residents no longer have to boil the water before cooking with it or drinking.

After returning to the States, Brian joined the WEOL Morning Show and told us about his trip to Guatemala.
