At the SEED Symposium in Pretoria on March 14, 2018, Village Energy was announced as the Overall Winner of the Hogan Lovells Community Solar Innovation Awards, winning a prize of $10,000! Congratulations to our fellow winning organizations, many of whom serve as role models and inspirations for our own work. That we were selected for the overall prize is humbling, and shows the growing international interest in our unique model around enabling productive use of energy and developing human capital in rural areas. We are grateful for the support of Hogan Lovells, one of the world’s leading international law firms, and all of the judges and partners involved.
With this award we will be able to further invest in our field team and infrastructure to better serve rural customers. You can read more on the award website: www.hoganlovellssolaraward.com.
