March 11, 2020

Congratulations to the OVO Solar Technologies team on receiving $250,000 from the Fund for Innovation and Transformation! OVO was selected as one of eight Canadian organizations funded in the program's first intake.  

OVO Solar Technologies helps to alleviate poverty in developing countries by providing farmers with affordable solar-powered egg incubators that help them raise more chickens, diversify their income and improve their livelihoods. This funding will be used for a 12-month 500 unit trial in Zambia using the egg incubators.
