Doing good with wind and solar

Well, if the Guardian can talk about people who are doing things that could help save the world, so can others …

In the under-30 crowd, Mathias Craig is the cofounder of blueEnergy, a nonprofit “harnessing the power of the wind to illuminate homes, schools and rural clinics in an impoverished region where nearly 80 percent of the population have no electricity.”

blueEnergy is working in Nicaragua (with plans to go global) to create local capacity for the manufacture, operations, and maintenance of small-scale wind and solar systems.  This system provides a “low-cost alternative to dirty diesel generators that few people can afford to run.”
