Lighting African schools with clean, safe solar power.

New in 2013: For every installation StraightUp completes, we donate a solar light for Africa via

Only 14% of people in rural sub-Saharan Africa have access to electricity. Solar Aid works to power  homes, schools and health clinics with clean and affordable light from the sun. Solar lights increase a family’s income by 20%, cut carbon emissions, and improve education and health.

StraightUp Solar is proud to support Solar Aid’s efforts to eradicate kerosene lamps from Africa by 2020.  Beyond donating a solar light per install, StraightUp will also match every dollar raised in honor of Mehville School District’s new solar installs.  Click here to contribute.
