Thanks to everyone who came out to our AGM to celebrate our achievements in 2015, we couldn't do this work without you! The past quarter has been a busy one. We've been testing some new solar home systems, implementing projects, and last, but not least, finalizing plans to open a new field office in rural Peru.

On an HR front, after two years of great work and many contributions to the organization, we wish our outgoing Technical Project Manager,
Ben Stehr all the best in his next endeavor in the solar industry in Ontario. While Ben will be missed, we are very pleased to welcome Gabriela Pella as our incoming Technical Project Manager. We would also like to welcome Isobelle Logan to our team - Isobelle is our second placement though Engineers Without Borders UK and we are grateful to have her on board in the capacity of Solar Advisor.

If you're looking for a way to learn about the basics of solar or off-grid installations, we've just posted new dates for our
workshops and seminars
. They tend to fill up quickly so contact us to register soon. We also have two great opportunities to join us in the field this Fall - a 10-day intensive off-grid solar training program in Peru and a volunteer program in Guatemala.

Lastly, save the date - on November 24th, 2016 we will be hosting our 2nd Annual Dinner in the Dark at Telus SPARK. Dave Kelly will once again be our host for the event. Tickets will go on sale in October. We look forward to seeing you there!
