Footprint Project and SolarPTL Create Second-Life for Solar Panels with Donation Agreement
"We are honored to work with a world-renowned organization such as SolarPTL," said Will Heegaard, Footprint Project's Operations Director. "These solar panels will be put to good use, including towards our Second Life Solar Initiative, which leverages used and donated solar panels to provide cleaner energy for those who need it most. Through this initiative we have already deployed SolarPTL's first batch of solar panel donations to the Garden of Tomorrow and Phoenix ToolBank!"
"It's great to see our solar panels used in such a productive manner" said Dr Mani TamizhMani, President of SolarPTL. "The impact that Footprint Project is having on communities where solar power wasn't an option just a few years ago is significant"
Footprint Project is a not-for-profit (501c3) organization whose mission is to provide cleaner energy for communities in crisis. They accomplish this by deploying mobile solar systems to support disaster relief and recovery operations, often in conjunction with other NGOs. For more information visit www.footprintproject.org .
