JinkoSolar donates 212 modules to Everybody Solar nonprofit

JinkoSolar Holding Co. is donating 57 kW to Everybody Solar, a U.S. non-profit organization working to provide solar to local charities.

jinkosolarJinkoSolar’s donation of 212 of its high-efficiency PV modules will help Everybody Solar provide solar energy systems to three non-profits in the U.S.: the Committee on the Shelterless (COTS) in Petaluma, Calif., the Sciencenter, in Ithaca, N.Y., and a third yet to be announced.

COTS provides life-saving shelter and transformative programs to families, children, and adults in Sonoma County, CA. The organization provides 322 beds of emergency shelter, both transitional and permanent housing, and serves 120 hot meals per day. The JinkoSolar PV modules will help Everybody Solar build a 27 kW system for COTS, saving it over $7,000 per year in electricity bills, money COTS can use for other purposes.

The Sciencenter, which welcomes over 100,000 visitors from across the country each year, is in the process of creating a new exhibit that will empower guests to engage in sustainable practices in their daily lives. The JinkoSolar PV modules will power this and several other Sciencenter exhibits.

“We are thrilled to partner with JinkoSolar, whose generous donation will help us provide free solar energy systems to several great charities in the U.S.,” said Youness Scally, Executive Director and Co-founder of Everybody Solar. “JinkoSolar has been one of Everybody Solar’s greatest supporters since our founding, and we are proud to partner with them as our primary PV module provider.”

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
