2 minutes, 16 seconds Read

The companies joining Solar2Share Collective from its inception include Menlo Electric, Jinko Solar, Sungrow, Deye, SolaX, sun.store, and Photonica. This joint initiative is open to diverse companies, inviting them to contribute equipment for solar stations in essential institutions such as healthcare and education.

As part of the Solar2Share Collective initiative, there are currently 20 preselected facilities including schools, kindergartens, hospitals, and rehabilitation centers that are ready to transition to solar energy in 2024.  These facilities are located across various countries in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, including Poland, Germany, Czechia, Hungary, the UK, Ukraine, Egypt, Lebanon, and South Africa. They represent a diverse range of crucial public institutions that are prepared to operate independently using renewable energy sources and are awaiting the necessary equipment to be provided including panels, batteries, and storage. Each installation varies in size from 20 to 40 kW.

Each facility will be assigned to a dedicated project group based on participating companies, streamlining the process of high-quality execution.

Menlo Electric is among the first partners supporting Solar2Share. Before joining Solar 2 Share Collective, Menlo Electric has installed 1025 solar panels across fifteen projects in seven countries, with a cumulative capacity of 400 kW. Now, the company is bringing its experience and partnerships to Solar2Share.

“Our past projects were made possible through the collaborative efforts of fourteen partners” said Bartosz Majewski, CEO at Menlo Electric. “They have resulted in reducing annual electricity costs of the beneficiaries by over 50 percent, allowing for the savings to be used for their statutory goals. Moreover, the reduction of CO2 emissions over a span of 25 years is estimated to reach 12 580 tons. We believe that by joining Solar2Share Collective we can scale the impact of our CSR program and foster greater industry involvement.”

sun.store, the largest online trading platform for solar components, has also come on board. sun.store has over 5,000 registered users from over 30 countries having access to more than 3 GW of components.

“Through Solar2Share Collective, we invite companies from diverse sectors to unite and implement impactful projects for the greater good” said Agata Krawiec-Rokita, CEO at sun.store. “We firmly believe this collective effort will bring positive change to community facilities that are currently unable to afford the transition.”

The Solar2Share Collective initiative has gained the support of top-tier manufacturers, further amplifying its impact. Maria Aram Merdzhanova, Head of Sales Eastern Europe, UK and Nordics at Jinko Solar, for example, says that the expansion of the previous programme “aligns perfectly with Jinko’s core values of environmental stewardship and social responsibility” while Alan Wu, Sales Director at Deye says that “joining Solar2Share Collective is an opportunity for companies from the industry to collaborate and create meaningful impact in communities.”
