Under the watchful eye of the resident 3-toed sloth, we toiled in the hot coastal sun of Manuel Antonio to install thirty-six, 250-watt Sonali solar panels on the roof of this hotel. While the hotel plans to add to their solar system in the near future, this 1200 kW system will lower their power bill by almost $ 200 a month.
