ASTRASUN donated solar system for the third time in the frames of its charity program „Astrasun Solar System for Animals”. This time the company helps an animal rescuer organization in Kecskemét with clean energy. The beneficiary of the aid is the Menhely az Állatokért Környezetvédelmi és Állatvédelmi Alapítvány (Shelter for the Animals Foundation for the Protection of the Environment and Animal Welfare).
The foundation is getting a rooftop solary system with 3,2 kWp capacity to support the shelter’s everyday activities. The licensing process has started, so after its completion, the installation of the solar system is expected to take place in late spring.
Clean energy to animal protection

The first two winners of the tender were the Kutyaszív Állatmentő Alapítvány (Dog Heart Animal Rescue Foundation) in Jászfényszaru and Kóborka Állatvédő Egyesület (Association for Stray Animals) in Lovasberény.
The third beneficiary takes care of 400 animals
The animal defende organization based on Kecskemét gives a temporary home for 300 doggies and near 100 cats, ensuring them chance for a happier life with owner. The Shelter for the Animals has its own vet, and the organization places great emphasis on environmental education. ASTRASUN can be sure, that the donation rooftop solar system will serve good purposes.
