Not just for Christmas…
Not only at Christmas time, but all year long Wagner & Co Solar assist selected social and sustainability projects. The support is not only in kind, but often also involves the transfer of know-how and the free on-site supply of expert of manpower. Earlier this year, several of such projects were completed again. In Tanzania, for example, solar power systems for an orphanage in Ilula and a school in Bagamoyo were installed as well as a large solar power system for a hospital in Lutindi.

Energy with the power of the sun
This year, Wagner & Co assists the Urbis Foundation, a Foundation for Environment and International Solidarity, with free design and installation of several solar energy systems. Three hospitals in Togo will receive reliable SECUterm hot water systems. Another solar water heating system for a hospital in the North of Togo already is in succesful operation since 2011. Unthinkable in industrialized countries, the water previously still had to be heated there on open fire.
Another project is the installation of a solar-assisted backup system for a youth training center in Sokodé, in Togo. In the near future the backup system will secure a stable power supply to the the education center with library and Internet access. At present the frequent power failures regularly cause damage to the computers. Thanks to the solar backup system, it soon will be possible to bridge the brownouts. Should a power outage occurr, the backup system jumps in and then turns off again automatically as soon as the mains power is restored.

We are working on it!
