PROINSO to donate photovoltaic supplies thanks to Solar Energy Solidarity social media campaign

Home Solar Energy SolidarityThe goal of this campaign is to turn the users’ solar energy votes into solar PV supplies donated by PROINSO  to PV solidarity projects in underprivileged areas.

SOLAR ENERGY SOLIDARITY is a social action to be available until January 12 on PROINSO’s Facebook pages in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, the United States and Canada.

Users who visit the company’s Facebook pages are just a click away from contributing 1 watt of real energy. Besides, they will be able to give their opinions or share their ideas on the future development of PV solidarity projects.

The Watts added with users’ clicks will become PV supplies to be donated by PROINSO for the development of one or more PV facilities featuring the accumulated watt peak power.

At PROINSO they invite web users to join the Solar Energy Solidarity campaign, highlighting that energy is “a vital element to meet people’s basic needs, provide services, upgrade farming practices, and help improve quality of life.”

Participate and help us accumulate the necessary SOLIDARITY SOLAR ENERGY.
