Hanergy has launched its “Lighting Africa” Project, under which the company will donate its first offline batch of solar-powered Humbrella, which is worth of a million RMB (US$160,000) to Africa through the China NGO Network for International Exchange.
The Hanergy 2018 Humbrella CSR Launch Ceremony was attended by ambassadors from 22 African nations as well as representatives from 8 NGOs, 10 multi-national companies and stakeholders from various circles.
Humbrella is the latest addition to the company’s growing roster of mobile energy solutions.
Combining the world’s highest conversion efficiency thin-film solar panels with the common umbrella, the Humbrella integrates four functions including off-grid power supply, electricity storage, night lighting, and terminal charging.
The Humbrella has a diameter of 2.7 meters and weighs only 8.8 kilograms due to Hanergy’s amazingly light & flexible thin-film solar panels.
The Humbrella launch event in Beijing also saw the establishment of Hanergy’s public welfare initiative, the “Lighting Africa Foundation.”
Open to participants from all over the world, the foundation will match every purchase of a Humbrella sent to Africa with one US dollar to be invested in long-term poverty alleviation and public welfare activities, thus doubly contributing to the public benefit of local communities in Africa.
