The Rogers based solar company, Shine Solar, sent 10 volunteers to La Sierpe, Colombia to make the first trip of many to assist the rural village with solar power.
- First steps: On the first trip, the team of 10 were able to help install a solar power system and a battery system for the local school. They also donated a smart TV for educational programing and 3 freezers and refrigerators.
- Clean water, clean energy: Shine Solar is partnering with the nonprofit GivePower. The ultimate goal of the project is to provide a solar water purification facility along with enough solar power and battery backups for the entire village.
