Low-income neighbourhood of Naples produces its own free solar energy

In Italy, some 1 million renewable energy installations are already producing 19 percent of the country's energy. Initiatives to produce electricity for local consumption are on the rise. One example is a deprived suburb of Naples, where solar panels have been installed on an after-school centre. In a neighbourhood hit hard by poverty and organised crime, the project gives low-income families access to free electricity while fostering environmental awareness among young people and their parents.
