How Solar Helps Us and Our Customers Give Back
When you install solar through Go Solar Group, you're not just bringing clean, renewable energy into your home. You're also bringing the power of the sun to underprivileged communities in Africa. Through our international arm, 1heart1mind, Go Solar Group has brought light, education, and clean energy to thousands of African children.
1heart1mind’s Current Projects —
A perimeter security fence to help ensure the children's safety while they're at school.
A pavilion for the children to have a gathering place, somewhere to eat, have school programs and stay dry during the rainy season.
A soccer field! They absolutely love playing soccer and we can't wait for them to have a flat and safe place to play!

Our Mission at Go Solar Group
Every organization has a what, how and why that motivates them to keep on going. At Go Solar Group we, too, have these key indicators that we have striven for since our origins.
What We Do
When people ask our employees what they do the basic response is, “I work for a solar company.” This is true Go Solar Group sells and installs solar power.
How We Do It: People, Product, Process
At Go Solar Group, the how behind our company is vital to our success. There are three things that get the utmost attention. These include people product and process.

Last, but not least, we strive to improve our processes so we can give quality at all levels of our organization.
Why We Keep On Going
The why behind Go Solar Group, however, is what motivates us to keep going. Our why is to make a difference. We strive to not only influence our local communities, but also those abroad.
Go Solar Group’s founders saw solar power as a means to empowerment for the buyer. What started out as a desire to help has become our passion.
Our most recent project was the construction of a school in Uganda. This project has put a roof over the heads of 60 children. But it also is providing solar power, education and healthcare. Our purpose is giving everyone, including these children, a chance to have the resources needed to live life to the fullest.
We have reached over 5,300 off-grid households with high-quality solar products in Uganda.
Our solar products have increased more than 3 million child-study hours and entrepreneurial activities.
Over 3,932 tons of black carbon emissions averted. We have installed clean water on the property for the children and surrounding community!
Our products used abroad give immediate savings and continued income, ensuring energy independence

How It Works
2. Go Solar Group forwards loan funds to local microfinance partners who distribute solar product loans to families and individuals in need.
3. Your microloan will fund solar products for:
- female entrepreneurs
- elementary schools
- families living on less than $1 per day
4. Solar power replaces toxic and dangerous kerosene lamps and is sustainable for years.
5. Your microloan is self-sustainable!
Once your loan is paid off, the capital will be recycled for another African in need.
