IPT partnered with “Ignite Power” to install solar panels in the homes of young cyclists
The Israeli solar company will provide families with advanced solar energy systems for free
Hundreds of families in Rwanda will be connected to electricity for free as part of team Israel – Premier Tech’s Racing for Change initiative in the country. The kids who participate in the cycling program at the team’s new Field of Dreams in Bugesera, Rwanda will be able to do their homework after dark, for the first time in their lives.
The gift of light to the families residing in villages all over the District of Bugesera, where IPT recently inaugurated a state-of-the-art bike center, became a reality following a unique partnership formed between the team and Ignite Power, a leading pan-African off-grid solar company headquartered in Israel and the UAE.
Over the past few days, more than 20 homes have already been connected to electricity through this project and many more families will be connected in the next few weeks. Ignite Power will connect at least 200 homes this year and aim to connect thousands more in the future.
