Mexico Renewable Energy Program added RE to protected areas
: "Between 1994 and 1998, Conservation International, The Nature Conservancy, the World Wildlife Fund, and their local partners received technical assistance and financial support to develop renewable energy projects to enhance the remote operations of their own staff and the activities of their local non-governmental organization (NGO) partners." 25 sites were involved, Sandia national labs participated, Winrock studied and documented as "Green power for green places" (apparently not online, only available by request). Enersol mentions their participation
as well: "Also in 1999, the first version of "Green Power for Green Places" was published and distributed by Winrock International. This pamphlet prepared by staff of the Mexico Renewable Energy Program, including Enersol, documents various projects which have incorporated renewable energy to promote biological research, conservation, and eco-tourism in protected areas of Mexico." 9:57:10 AM
