We support SolarAid with a regular monthly donation, but we think it woud be great if you, our customers, could support them too. There are lots of ways you can do this – if you have a look at the SolarAid website you can find out more.
For every solar pv system we install, we donate £10 to SolarAid and we invite each client to do the same, once their system is up and running. £10 is enough to supply two robust solar lamps to a community in Africa, helping them live safely and more sustainably.
