New Use Power and Footprint Venture launches Second-Life Solar Initiative to Convey Sustainable Power with Solar Panels


The New Use Energy and Footprint Project has worked together again to make productive use of the reused solar panels. The portable solar generator SunKit enables the operation of new solar cells or used solar modules.

TEMPE, AZ (Merxwire) – The Second Life solar initiative is a win-win plan. This plan allows old solar panels to retain the value of being reused. We hope to promote: New Batteries, Solar Solutions, Affordable Systems, Emergency Power, Portability, Waste Reduction, Resilience Support, Recycled Batteries.

“We are excited about the win-win potential of this initiative,” said Will Heegaard, Executive Director of Footprint Project. “Not only does it keep many used solar panels out of landfills, but it also helps our mission by making solar energy more accessible and affordable to those who can least afford it, which is central to our mission.”

“The Second Life Solar initiative has always been part of the vision behind the development of the SunKit,” said Lee Feliciano, COO of New Use Energy. “From day one, we designed the SunKit to work with almost any commercial solar module – new or used – as we received feedback from the Footprint Project, which is our strategic partner in this venture.”

The Second Life Solar Initiative (SLSI) is a program developed by the Footprint Project and New Use Energy to make productive use of reused solar modules. As part of this program, Footprint supplies reused solar modules that have been donated or recovered from disaster-affected areas to NUE, which bundles these modules with its SunKits. The reused solar panels will be made available to SunKit customers free of charge, including NGOs, disaster-hit communities and candidates for environmental justice initiatives. The result is a low cost, field serviceable solar system that is mobile yet powerful enough to meet the needs of emergency managers in a wide variety of applications. NUE increases the impact and donates a donation to the Footprint Project for every SunKit sold as part of the Second-Life Solar Initiative.

Footprint Project is a non-profit organization (501c3) whose mission is to provide cleaner energy to communities in times of crisis. They do this by using mobile solar systems to support disaster relief and recovery efforts, often in collaboration with other NGOs. New Use Energy is an Arizona-based company whose mission is to bring affordable clean energy to everyone, everywhere. NUE designs and manufactures low cost solar and battery systems that replace traditional fossil fuel alternatives such as portable generators. NUE attaches great importance to mobility and ease of maintenance on site in order to maximize the service life of our products. The benefits of NUE products include the speed of deployment, the SIMPLICITY of the technology, and the SUSTAINABILITY of the solution.
