Partnership with Mabira Collective
Enlite has partnered with Mabira Collective, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting education for women and children, to donate towards their cause. The initiative is aimed at empowering women and their children through education, which is an essential tool for breaking the cycle of poverty.
Sanjeev Thakur, the CEO of Enlite, emphasized the importance of businesses making an impact in society beyond just being profitable. "We have a responsibility in the business world to create impact, not just be profitable. That responsibility can't just be a marketing effort or a corporate initiative. Impact needs to be the core of a business," he said.
Enlite has committed $18,000 to this cause and has already raised over half of that amount. The funds will be used to provide educational resources, such as textbooks, computers, and other materials, to women and
The partnership between Enlite and Mabira is an example of how businesses can use their resources to make a positive impact in society. By supporting education, Enlite is not only contributing to the betterment of individuals and communities but is also investing in the future of the society as a whole.
This initiative is also aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically SDG 4, which aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

Martin Garcia Joins Enlite as Chief Sustainability and Strategy Officer
Martin Garcia is a Senior Executive with 15+ years of experience, both in commercial and operational roles within the Private, Public, Non-Profit, and Academia sectors. Mr. Garcia holds a B.S. and a M.Eng degree from Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile and a Master of Science in Management from MIT Sloan School of Management, with a concentration in Strategic Management, Sustainability and Complex System Analysis.
Mr. Garcia is now the Chief Sustainability and Strategy Officer at Enlite Home, where his main task is to develop and implement a strategy for sustainable growth in a fast-paced industry, combining business strategy, operations management, purpose and sustainability within the solar arena.
When Garcia was first introduced to Enlite, there was a clear alignment in what the company needed and what knowledge and skills he could provide. “My dream come true would be a company where I can make a difference and a company who wants to make a positive impact, and all those ingredients were here. It was a fantastic alignment,” Garcia shared.
Prior to this role, Mr. Garcia acted as the Head of the Public-Private Partnerships Division within the Social Development Ministry of Chile. His main tasks included the implementation of the Technical Secretariat of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in the Country, the design of the first Social Impact Investment mechanisms in the government, and the continuous evaluation of more than 300 (per year) social impact projects.

Enlite Announces Women’s Initiative Efforts Underway
Enlite is revolutionizing summer sales across the board. We are firm in our belief that sales should be an industry that is accessible to and supportive of any individual with a passion to make a difference. Our Women’s Initiative is pushing that idea forward as we extend our reach to more capable women and encourage them to join our team. When reflecting on her experience joining Enlite as a rep, Tess Gilliland shared, “I felt like this was a place where I could truly be myself, and also progress in the sales world”. Tess was one of several women who made over 6 figures in commission on her first summer selling solar.
Enlite is a place for women to sell, be successful, and grow in the process. The empowerment of current and future female reps to be leaders and realize they are talented and capable is incredibly important to our mission. That is why we aim to have 50% of our reps and management be female by 2025. The women at Enlite have proved to themselves and this male dominated industry that they have what it takes to achieve their goals and maximize their potential.
In order to further propel our reps on the road to success, Enlite is leading a mentorship program for the women in the company. Each rep is assigned to one of our female executives who they then meet with to review and reflect on the rep’s individual goals, accomplishments, and high & lows. Our reps leave these mentoring sessions with attainable goals, increased confidence, and renewed direction.
Tess Gilliland continued, “It’s been super awesome having these successful women as a resource to us, and having mentors who are actually invested in us as women. They don’t treat us like we’re just a nameless rep in the company. They actually invest time in us, and specialize their advice to us so that we can feel confident when we go into the summer”.
We recognize that there is a synergy among the women in this company that is unlike anything the sales world has seen. They support, consult, and encourage each other while they work through the summer, and continue to do so in other academic and charitable pursuits throughout the rest of the year. Success at Enlite is not a zero sum game, and we know that by supporting the women in our company, they will support Enlite as we strive to make an impact and create a more sustainable future.
