APR Energy(APR) has recently completed a renovation project on the Escuela Ciudadela Kennedy, a primary grade school located in Barranca, Costa Rica. Employees from APR’s Barranca power plant, located approximately one mile from the school, volunteered to replace the electrical system, conduct general repair work and repaint the interior and exterior of the structure.

Approximately 500 community members including teachers from Escuela Ciudadela Kennedy, members of the local school board and local residents also attended the event.
The school renovation project was part of APR Energy’s ongoing Community Service initiative which is being implemented throughout communities all over the world where each of their power plants is located.
