Solar energy that can
build a sustainable future....

 

GoSol is empowering a global wave of solar entrepreneurs to escape poverty through training and use of direct solar heat. We promote the Lytefire tech, a powerful (350°C), simple, clean, local and accessible solar concentrator created to bake, roast, and dehydrate. Our packages are cost-efficient solutions for emerging economies.

 

 

Why GoSol
