Frequently Asked Questions
Most frequent questions and answers
HOW DO WE PLACE OUR ORDER OF LIGHTS?
Simply complete this enquiry form and we will organise the order for you
CAN A SOLARBUDDY REPRESENTATIVE FACILITATE THE SESSION?
Absolutely! There is an additional cost for this, and it depends on whether it is virtual or in person.
Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how we can add even more impact to your session.
HOW LONG BEFORE WE RECEIVE OUR LIGHTS?
Once you have placed your order and payment has been confirmed, your lights will be delivered to your nominated address within 4 weeks!
Please note that we cannot send your lights to you without full payment or a PO number
OUR JUNIORBUDDY SESSION DATE NEEDS TO BE POSTPONED – IS THAT OK?
Not a problem. Simply send us an email to update us on the change in date so that we can update our records. Just remember we just need them returned to us within 3 months of the original delivery date. The longer the lights are with you, the battery life depletes.
Sending them back as soon as possible ensures that the child receiving your light will be able to use them for the greatest time.
WHEN DO WE RECEIVE OUR LEARNING RESOURCES?
SOME LIGHTS ARE INCOMPLETE – WHAT DO WE DO?
Do not worry, we ask you to please ensure all lights, letters, screw drivers and spare parts are returned to us in your yellow bucket. All out lights are carefully quality control checked before they are distributed to a child living in energy poverty.
DO WE HAVE TO RUN THIS PROGRAM WITHIN A CERTAIN TIME?
No, you can run the program whenever best suits your school’s timetable. Once you receive the lights, please assemble them and contact SolarBuddy to have them picked within 3 months of the original delivery date.
CAN WE KEEP OUR LIGHTS?
We ask you not to keep any lights for personal use. By assembling your light, you are helping a child living in energy poverty. The more lights we can send to children, the greater impact we have.
100% of solar lights ordered must be returned to SolarBuddy for quality control and distribution. If this does not occur, SolarBuddy will charge a replacement fee of $10 for each unreturned solar light.
HOW DO WE RETURN THE JUNIORBUDDY DEVICES BACK TO YOU?
When you have assembled your lights simply request a SolarBuddy collection here and we will arrange a courier to collect them from your location.
