PPC Solar Launches Online Crowdsourcing Campaign to Bring Solar to Ethiopia
Under the guidance and project management of PPC Solar CEO Daniel Weinman and in conjunction with non-profit Imagine1day, the 7kW off-grid solar installation will take place February 2014. Donations will fund system components, transportation, installation, and training necessary to build local technical skills to sustain the system and effectively integrate it into the community.
Electricity is one of the biggest impediments to progress and education in Africa. Currently, there is no electricity in the Abada village. This solar electric system will be life-changing for the local primary school, and will serve as a source of power for the entire community.
By using solar electricity:
"I was offered this opportunity when developing the 1.5 MW utility solar array near the airport," says PPC Solar CEO Daniel Weinman. "I have school-age children, and this chance to enhance education for a community by sharing knowledge hit close to home for me." The Give the Gift of Light online campaign will run until January 31, 2013. See http://imagine1day.seeyourimpact.org/
