The Problem

Eco Solar House was developed in 2005 and was rebuilt in 2012, for having hurt entirely by termites. Dr. Jane Goodall opened in March 2015 Eco Solar House in a ceremony where a banana was planted symbol of conservation and environmental and natural preservation. The Eco House Solar is an example of sustainable living, where people can learn to change their patterns to more sustainable livelihoods and environmental conservation. Ecologically and appear naturally, we can make several changes in our common habits of living. We want people to visit our project after having it fully established so that they can learn through visits lectures and workshops as changing our patterns of consumption and housing. We show photovoltaic systems with solar panels to supply solar energy. Home gardens and aquaponic with spices and vegetables. Fruit trees near the house with signs to identify their names. Natural cleaning products, cooking vegetarian menus, energy efficient appliances, household products such as organic mattres, towels, sheets and curtains, wall paint without odor or chemicals.
