Why Bring Renewable Energy Solutions to the Developing World....

In a struggle to create momentum for action in developing alternative and renewable energy sources the expectations seem always to reside in the willingness of the developed nations and their economies to adopt new endeavors. Almost exclusively, the needs and goals of economically advanced nations are presented as being the most important factors that drive the progress. However, there are much nobler ways to bring prosperity and progress to the world as whole. More important than the need to further increase the already highest in the world per capita energy consumption in North America, is the responsibility to bring basic life necessities to those regions of the world that are underdeveloped and to those that have no means to produce energy at all.


Friends of Solar HOPE

We have been fortunate to work with, for, and beside a number of amazing people and organizations in our mission to bring renewable energy to communities in the developing world.

This list highlights Solar HOPE friends and partners who have made the efforts both easier and more satisfying. Thank you!
