renewable energy sources available in the communities, while also establishing processing plants to localize value-added services for the region's raw materials. The power plant and the processing plant will be linked and interdependent, with the electricity needed to run the processing plant coming directly from the power plant and the processing plant, directly increasing the overall income of the population, reducing the aggregate cost of producing the electricity, and thereby making the power plant sustainable for the community.
