TanzSolar's New Website, Neutrogena "Wave for Change" Contest

Please go visit our new, updated website. Same address;, but lots of new information. This site now contains an information update weekly under News/Stories.

Announcing the Neutrogena "Wave for Change" Grant Contest. TanzSolar was selected by Neutrogena as one of 3 Environmental projects on Global Giving to compete for a corporate donation program! There are 9 projects in total in 3 categories; Education, Environment and Disaster Recovery. One project from each category will win the competition and will be awarded 1/3 of the funds raised.

Help us WIN the competition! It’s easy to vote and your vote will help TanzSolar to provide solar electric lighting to rural villagers, replacing the dangerous and highly polluting kerosene lanterns they currently use. Please vote now! Just click below and select "Provide Renewable Energy in Tanzania".

Spread the word! This could be a big boost for TanzSolar and for thousands of villagers with no access to electricity. And don’t forget to register any qualifying Neutrogena purchases to help raise money for this wonderful program.
