Palmetto Pledges $5 Million to Women’s Solar Training in Africa


Palmetto has announced a new ‘Get Solar, Give Solar’ program focused on providing underserved communities with access to solar energy systems. Palmetto believes clean energy is for everyone. In the U.S. the focus is on providing the lowest price in residential solar. The Get Solar, Give Solar Program will focus on communities without stable, predictable and consistent access to energy for everyday needs.

Under “Get Solar, Give Solar,’ Palmetto has pledged a $5 million, multi-year commitment to offer significant support for Solar Sister’s core operation — training and supporting women to deliver clean energy directly to homes in rural African communities. Solar Sister is a female-empowered entrepreneurial program focusing on the distribution of solar energy in developing countries.
