A note of clarification, by Bob Leaper. R.C.of Danetre, Daventry.
It seems that some of the information around the origin of this project may give the impression that this was
a French project, simply picked up and applied to our club and district.
The origins of the idea lie in a proposal to the Council on Resolutions made by a French club in District 1700, the details appear under Resolution 19R-30 – available on the R.I. website.
In fact this resolution has not been progressed by the originator in the French club, and the project described here is entirely conceived by the Rotary Club of Danetre, Daventry, simply using the principle of supporting local solar electricity projects in developing communities.
