Katin's story

Get to now Katin.

He lives with his family with two young children in Hayanist village. The family owns a little farm where they cultivate vegetables. Aside from that, he serves in the military. The family is always in search of news ways to improve their living conditions. Thus, after learning about the advantages of solar systems, they decided to install one at their house.

With the provided financial support they plan to pay for the pictured solar power system and its installation. Katin is sure that this breakthrough technology will let them cut their utility costs and move toward a more sustainable consumption. Katin is full of hope and inspires the neighbors to go green, too.
