Project Code: MLcr105

Reliable power is a seemingly simple thing, however it makes a huge difference for general well-being and the ability to function effectively on a day-to-day basis. Not only is it beneficial for completing ordinary daily tasks but the presence of consistent light also greatly increases security, decreasing the risk of break-ins.

Jonno and Heather are so grateful to have power all during the day with their solar panels and inverter. They also have enough battery power to last almost the whole night which is a real blessing. In early 2020, Jonno and Heather would love to finish off the system and purchase enough battery power to last all through the night and into the morning on overcast days. Power through the night assists with security by providing lighting around the house and property. This extra capacity requires purchasing, transporting and importing from South Africa and costs $6,000.

Gifts to this project are NOT TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
