Fondazione Francesca Rava: Solar Project Completion

Date: 09/11/2021

Following the 2016 earthquake in central Italy, NextEnergy Foundation funded the installation of an 11kWp solar system on a nursery in the town of Pieve Torina in partnership with Fondazione Francesca Rava (FFR). In 2019, the Foundation also installed a solar plant on the rooftop of a reception centre for women and children in difficult situations in Cagliari, Sardegna.

This year, NextEnergy Foundation renewed its partnership with FFR in Pieve Torina where a 14kWp solar system was installed on a seismic-proof community/sports centre. The centre is composed of an indoor gym hall and includes volleyball and basketball courts. It will accommodate community initiatives and school activities for the 1,300 inhabitants of Pieve Torina. The installation was completed last month, and Fausto Pappalardo and Letizia Petracci attended the inauguration ceremony. A huge thank you to both, and to Gianluca Boccanera, who took the reins on the solar installation and oversaw the project from start to finish.
