The Sunel team is full of energy and initiative. They are dynamic, questioning and entrepreneurial with a determination to not only make a better business but a better world for ourselves and future generations, with an essential energy and vitality that pushes Sunel forward.

Sunel’s successful growth strategy has been the ability to secure strategic partnerships with key international players in the global solar energy business. As a result of this strategy, Sunel has built 5 joint venture companies with these key international solar players to sustain long term shareholder value.

In Sunel, we believe that trust, honesty and transparency are the foundation for a long-term cooperation. By consulting and supporting our customers and maintaining their projects, we ensure the maximum benefit of each investment.

Lastly but most importantly, Sunel goes the extra mile to ensure a solar installation has a positive impact in each community in which we serve. Now Sunel is going a step further to create long-term contributions in communities where our utility scale solar installations are located especially in Sub-Sahara and Far East Asia. SunelForAll is the solar energy philanthropic program of Sunel, which was started to serve underprivileged and disadvantaged communities who still don’t have access to electricity, particularly in rural areas mainly located in Sub-Sahara.

Every Sunel project is designed and built by solar industry’s experts who live by our safety and quality culture. We ensure our people go home safe each day and that the systems that we build have the quality necessary to last for the designed system life. Whether we are building on a rooftop in a dense urban area, or a ground mount in a remote agriculture field, our safety and quality standards do not waiver. We live by these values for our own integrity and to ensure that our systems are generating the greatest value possible for our customers.

Philantrophy

Sunel goes the extra mile to ensure a solar installation has a positive impact in each community in which we serve. Now we are going a step further to create long-term contributions in communities where our utility scale solar installations are located especially in Sub-Sahara and Far East Asia.

SunelForAll is the solar energy philanthropic program, which was started to serve underprivileged and disadvantaged communities who still don’t have access to electricity, particularly in rural areas mainly located in Sub-Sahara.

Working with solar project stakeholders will allow the Sunel team to create philanthropic programs suited to the needs of the communities in which the company’s solar installations are constructed. The impacts of these initiatives are long term, scaleable and copyable. They are tailored to the needs of the community through the insights and collaboration with the solar project stakeholders.
