"The mission of the Green Go Solar Project is to provide affordable and accessible solar energy
to the underprivileged through education, hands-on participation, and service."
The Green Go Solar Project uses cosmetically rejected solar cells to teach people without electricity how to build working solar panels from recycled material. We provide hands-on vocational and educational opportunities to learn the basics of DIY "green" technologies for students,enthusiasts, and those that can not afford conventional retail equipment of this nature.

Participants utilize these solar cells/components and local materials to learn to construct solar panels. These panels are then put to work in off-grid applications, generating electric power in the local community. Students leave the workshops with both solar cells and the working knowledge and training to use them to create their own solar panel.

We demonstrate the benefits of renewable power through practical instruction and service that improves people's lives.
