KS Electric Gives Back


  • KS Electric is proud to install solar all over California and as a valley based company, is proud re-invest back into the valley! As of February 2016, KS Electric sponsors renewable energy college scholarships through the Clean Energy Cluster!
  • We strongly believe in ensuring that the next generation values renewable energy. This is why KS Electric participates regularly in community events, such as taking solar panels and inverters to local elementary schools. We also volunteer at Girl Scout meetings giving presentations about how solar works and the importance of clean energy. Also, Liz Obernolte is a guest lecturer of business strategy in the energy field at the Craig School of Business at California State University.
  • Solar power saves lives in third-world countries and KS Electric is ecstatic to be able to contribute! In partnership with Karimu International Help Foundation, KS Electric committed to installing solar in Tanzania, Africa in the summer of 2017 as part of our commitment to help nonprofits. Without working power in Tanzania, many women still lose their lives in childbirth, and school is cancelled when there is not enough light to read. We provided all of the materials and labor to bring power to the maternity ward and four of the schools in the town of Dareta Kati, Tanzania.
  • In 2019, KS Electric will give by sponsoring a “KS Electric Cares Day”! KS Electric employees from all over CA will come together here in the Central Valley to partner with Habitat for Humanities and their senior paint program! “We are all so lucky – and have so much more than so many. I would like to stop and appreciate that for a day, and to give back a little bit to those with fewer opportunities than we have.  I envision us doing something different each year – but always taking a day/year to leave the world a little better than we found it” – Liz Obernolte
