Renogy Doing Good Through the Jack Mah Foundation

Posted by Renogy Marketing on

RENOGY Joins the Jack Ma Foundation in Optimizing a Rural School's Energy Management with Solar Power. Students from Zitong Elementary School in Chun’an County, Hangzhou City—one of five pilot schools part of the Rural Boarding School Project founded by Jack Ma-- will benefit from this program. 

Renogy, a member of the Jack Ma Foundation, recently donated a 10kW solar power system to Zitong Elementary School and created a solar education center for the students. With the help of the 10kW solar power system, Zitong Elementary School will be able to generate energy through solar and manage it with the Renogy Cloud platform. By using the new power system, it will significantly reduce the school's electricity costs and contribute to China's sustainable development.                                                     Zitong Elementary School, above

The Solar Education Center built by Renogy will encourage students to acquire basic solar knowledge through activities and games. Renogy believes that the information learned and interest generated from the center will contribute to the growth of careers in the renewable energy sector.
