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.
