Abstract

The application of photovoltaic technology is necessary to reduce the harmful effects of an intense earthquake in the city of Portoviejo. It is based on the information obtained about the occurrence of the earthquake on April 16 and considering data from other events of the same nature occurred in the territory, an assessment of the seismic risk for the city and by characterization of one of the zones is made subject to danger, the introduction of photovoltaic luminaires is proposed in order to provide certain strengths that can facilitate the work of the first urgency in the rescue and urgent repair of breakdowns, as well as the evacuation of the population to safer areas especially at night. An analysis is made of the technological structure of photovoltaic luminaires and the prices they have in the market, both internally and internationally.
