In 1992 our CEO was installing antennas at various Dublin Fire stations. During one of these installations he was approached by Willie Bermingham founder of ALONE – the charity for the poor and homeless elderly people. The horror story told by Willie struck a chord and with the message “a little offering never ends” our company has supported ALONE every year since that chance meeting.

In 2014 we received a presentation from Marie Hounslow of Renewable World – the charity who are tackling poverty through renewable energy. Immediately we could see where a little support from each and every company involved with commercial renewable energy projects, even a small company like ours, that together we can make a huge difference to poor communities in the developing world. At KONA we do our small bit by donating a % of every order won and we encourage our clients to do likewise.
Are you a commercial renewable energy company?
