Solar Head of State is a non-profit association formed by a team of solar energy social entrepreneurs around the globe. By offering a free solar system to every country for their executive residence, the country’s leadership is given first hand experience with the proven benefits of renewable technologies.
Each system is a demonstration project to inspire the mass adoption of solar energy and other renewable energy technologies by the citizens of the country and around the world. We aim to create an aspirational solar leadership club that inspires other leaders to follow suit by installing solar energy on their own executive residence’s and adopting favorable renewable energy policies.
At Solar Head of State, we recognize that not all leaders are fair to their people. For this reason, we restrict our offering of a free solar system to heads of state that:
- Are not listed on freedomhouse.org’s Worst of the Worst human rights violators list
- Do not privately own the country’s executive residence (the solar system is a gift to the people of the country)
- Did not attain power through means of military force
