History

In 2009, our sister organization, Living Waters for the World, began working with the leadership of the Synod of the Sun, a regional governing body in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) They thought a new ministry of solar power systems to pair with water treatment systems would be a natural fit for our Synod, which includes all the PC(USA) congregations in Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma. The Synod leadership jumped at the chance, and quickly found Presbyterians and other Christians to come together to start Solar Under the Sun. Chris McRae, our Executive Director and an instructor with Living Water for the World's Clean Water U, worked with many talented people to form a committee to develop this outreach. As a result, Solar under the Sun's first training session began in May of 2010.

Other Partners in this mission outreach are:
Living Waters for the World
Haiti Education Foundation
The Global Orphan Project
Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center

Between May 2010 and September 2015, Solar Under The Sun has held thirteen Solar Schools and graduated 268 students in our Solar 1 and Solar 2 courses.  Those students have gone on to install solar energy systems that are powering Living Waters for the World's water purification systems, wells, schools, churches, orphanages, health clinics, and homes in places of the world that lacked reliable electricity.  In a short five years, Solar Under the Sun's ministry started in Haiti and spread to Kenya, Uganda, Ukraine, and Honduras.  

The picture you see on the right is our first Solar under the Sun install at Arcahaie, Haiti in July of 2009. To see pictures of our first seven classes, please click here.
