Earn from solar powering schools, businesses and communities in the sunniest locations on Earth.


1. Sourcing our Solar Projects

Sun Exchange identifies schools, businesses and organisations that want to go solar. Our solar engineers work with local solar construction partners to carefully evaluate proposed solar projects and ensure they meet our core criteria:

  • Economic and technical viability
  • Social and environmental responsibility

Tip: Sign Up and get notified about new solar project crowdsales coming soon.

2. Buying Solar Cells

Once solar projects have been accepted as viable and responsible, we run a crowdsale for the solar cells that will power the project. Any individual or organisation, anywhere in the world, can sign up to be a Sun Exchange member and buy solar cells, even starting with a single solar cell.

Your solar cells will:

  • generate clean energy
  • make a positive social and environmental impact
  • earn income as you lease them to schools, businesses and other organisations
  • reduce your carbon footprint for years to come

Tip: Buy solar cells in the local currency of the project using credit card, bank transfer, Sun Exchange wallet or Bitcoin (BTC).

3. Installing Solar Cells

Once a solar cell crowdsale sells out (they go quickly!), installation of the solar project begins. The appointed local construction partners install your solar cells, which typically takes four to six weeks, but can be longer for larger projects.

Tip: Track the status of your solar cells through your Sun Exchange dashboard.

4. Effortless Solar Income

Generate and sell clean energy. Schools, businesses and organisations pay you to use the clean electricity your solar cells produce. Your lease starts when your solar cells start generating electricity.

You’ll receive your monthly solar income, net of insurance and servicing fees, into your Sun Exchange wallet in your choice of the local currency of the project or Bitcoin (BTC).

Your Sun Exchange dashboard keeps you up to date on:

  • solar project status updates
  • your solar cell earnings (BTC and ZAR)
  • the clean energy your solar cells generate (kWh)
  • the amount of carbon your solar cells offset (kg CO2)
  • your Sun Exchange wallet balance, payments and withdrawals

Tip: The monthly income you accumulate in your Sun Exchange wallet can be used to buy more solar cells in other solar projects.
