- Community Action
Although our primary objective at juwi solar is to develop, build and operate large-scale photovoltaic solar facilities throughout North America, we recognize our social responsibility to educate the local and national communities about the impact of solar energy projects and how the technology functions. In addition, we endeavor to promote a healthy and sustainable way of life for the cities and communities in which we conduct our business. Through our participation in these communities and various sponsorships around the country, juwi solar leads by example and promotes civic values through every step we take.
Habitat For Humanity
Giving up their Saturday, many juwi solar Inc. employees spent their day volunteering for Habitat For Humanity. They spent a full day completing various tasks such as painting and hanging siding on two local homes in the Lakewood, Colorado area. Their volunteer efforts will help provide affordable homes for low-income families.
Community Food Share
On two different occasions several juwi solar Inc. employees volunteered for the Niwot, Colorado Community Food Share program. Employees helped to support the Food Bank’s mission by inspecting, sorting, and boxing food donations for distribution to Partner Agencies.
Solar for Schools
JSI takes an active role in promoting local solar energy education through its “Solar for Schools” program. This program involves building a small, net-metered solar array and providing the school with a K-12 solar curriculum so that students can learn about solar energy and how the technology works. To date, JSI has installed and donated solar projects in the following locations:
- Mohawk Local School District, Upper Sandusky, Ohio
- Carey Local School District, Upper Sandusky, Ohio
- Upper Sandusky Local School District, Upper Sandusky, Ohio
- East Central School District, San Antonio, Texas
- Others currently under development
