“For every residential solar system we install in the United States, we work with 1heart1mind to fund the solar equivalent of every U.S. installation for Uganda families, which is what our domestic solar customers are contributing to when they choose us as their solar company,” notes Scott Cramer, president and co-founder of Go Solar Group. Our shared vision with Ugandan residents, which inspired the creation of 1heart1mind, is to improve lives around the world through the potential of solar energy. The environmental, social, financial, health and educational implications of the progress we have made in 2021 gives us hope that the global economy will increasingly see solar energy as an infinite and sustainable resource for improving lives – not only as a tool to save money on electricity bills,” concludes Cramer.
