Most remote Pacific Island schools depend on diesel generators for a couple/few hours each day for their electricity. We install solar power so they have all day power and, instead of spending their very limited money on fuel, they can buy computers and other desperately needed education resources. That means decades of new education opportunities and less carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere.
“Inreach” For those of you who join us on this journey we hope you’ll see that together we can create a better educated and more sustainable world. You are making a real difference.
The islands have a history of cheap short lasting solar systems, generally and in the few schools that have them. A corner stone of our projects is premium quality Q CELLS panels, SMA inverters, Clenergy high wind resistant mountings and Powerstack battery banks. With the fantastic support of these companies and other supporters we are able to spend donor dollars more than one and a half times over — and that means quality systems that last.

Donors see exactly where and how their contribution is making a difference. When a school solar project is planned you are sent an update with details of the school, project specifications and the benefits it will bring to the school. When the project is completed you receive (emailed ready to print) a personalised certificate of appreciation with project details and pictures of the smiling kids at that school.
We are working to developing links between overseas schools and the remote island schools to develop relationships between students so they can share cultural and learning experiences.
