Welcome to The Great Solar Giveaway! IDEAS For Us is helping to facilitate FREE solar panels to the community for any person, organization, business, or hobbyist to access. An Orlando group is switching out their useful, older solar panels and we want to keep as many of them out of the landfill as possible and that is where you come in! We are excited to see what you can do with them! If you are interested in this upcycling event, please fill out the form in our bio, agree to the terms, and we will send you an EventBrite link with the pick-up details. ☀️
Sustainable Development Goal 7 is Clean Energy and focused on ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
