Renewable for disaster relief (2): 1 year after Japan earthquake

Ishinomaki City, Iwate

Ishinomaki City is one of the most seriously impacted areas. Some coastal towns are still submerged because the land subsided significantly after the Tsunami. Completely isolated, those areas are still without access to electricity. But it’s not stopping local people to come back. They want to come back to repair their homes. They want to go back to what they used to do for living before the disaster: fishery.

Solar panels and solar lights are providing electricity and light that is so much needed by the local people who come visit their homes from temporary housing 15 miles away. Solar- powered light guides the fishermen early in the morning when they come back to the port sitting in otherwise completely lightless, pitch-dark town. The project also aims to install solar electric power system in town’s only shipyard that is so critical to keep local fishery up and running.

Tsunagari Nukumori Project is accepting donation. Visit their website if you are interested.
