The Association draws its membership from individuals and companies who are involved in the production, supply, importation, exportation, installation, and servicing of RETs in Malawi. In addition, the Association also draws membership from organizations, individuals, projects, and programs that have sufficient and verifiable interest in the promotion, production, supply, importation, exportation, installation, and servicing of RETs in Malawi.
