Why  Solar, Why Now: While the conditions for developing solar in Mexico are ripe, there are many obstacles including access to and cost of system components, lack of rebates or other incentives, and inconsistencies in national grid connection and buyback programs. This is changing however, as the Calderón government moves to embrace new programs and equipment importation and in-country production of solar equipment increases. Foreign programs such as the German sponsored “25,000 Solar Roofs” project has helped spur interest in use of solar on a national level. Locally here in Cabo Corrientes, Jalisco, Owner Dan Gair in working in concert with the municipal government of El Tuito and Bob Johnson of the Medicine Hat Rotary Club in Alberta Canada to build the first solar powered school in the region. Dan is also currently preparing to open Camping Sol Y Mar (Camping Sol Y Mar), Mexico’s first completely off grid, solar RV camping and tenting park as well as volunteering his services for installation of Cabo Corrientes first solar school project in nearby Tehua Mixtle. Numerous other volunteer and foreign aided solar projects are springing up around the country.
