APR Energy(APR) recently completed a community service project in the community of La Esperanza, Peru. The community service event, coordinated between the local APR Energy power project team in Trujillo, Peru and the Municipality of La Esperanza, promoted personal hygiene initiatives in this poverty- stricken community.
