The Project

The Green Go Solar Project acquires and imports cosmetically defective solar cells to create solar panels that are installed in locations where there is either no power or extremely limited access to it. Locally sourced and ideally reclaimed materials are used to create the housing structures for the solar cells. The Green Go Solar Project facilitates solar workshops and utilizes volunteers to test, assemble and install the solar panels. These panels then go into use in the local community.

Solar workshops are taught by instructors from The Green Go Project. In Baja, solar workshops have Spanish-translation and are comprised of international volunteers and local residents for a cross-cultural experience. Workshop participants learn basic engineering principals of photovoltaic power, solar panel construction, panel installation, and system design. Local workshop participants leave the workshop with solar cells and technical diagrams to build their own solar panels. Remaining solar cells are used in public installation projects.
