    Creating an army of solar technicians to make solar a viable reality!

    At a recent business reception, an African diplomat told me his roof top solar installation hadn’t been functioning for months and that he was at wits end in finding a technician locally to repair and maintain. He wondered whether I had any ideas or ways to help him, for instance by sending an expert technician to fix his problem once and for all. Though I was a bit taken aback by this request, as the meeting was in Utrecht in the Netherlands, it did get me thinking.
