MASA,Inc was first created as facebook group last May 27, 2015 after I realized that there was still lacking or something was still missing in all the solar seminars I had attended. I wanted something more concrete and a more comprehensive seminar or training, something of a legacy. So I decided to have the group legalized and had it registered in SEC(Securities and Exchange Commission) as Magkasamang Adhikaing Solar Association(MASA),Inc last July 9, 2015 as the FIRST SOLAR GROUP TO BE SEC REGISTERED with the blessings and help of my sisters Ma.Dolores Santillan Fontanilla, Victoria Alvaro, Antonio Santillan and my dear friends Ka Ronald San Juan, Sir Denz Sulligan, Sir Jose Bernard Condez. Our first meeting for MASA Inc was held August 8,2015 with Ka Ronald and Sir Denz for Train the Trainers workshop.
With the help of Ka Ronald and Sir Denz, the first workshop seminar on Solar Panel making for Train the Trainers was held at Design Center of the Philippines(venue through the help of sir Illac Diaz of Liter of Light) last August 29,2015. Prior to our workshop seminar we were invited for a radio interview at DWIZ Business is our Business by Ms.Marou Pahati Sarne. And our journey as KaMASA boomed in so short a time. Workshops for members and trainers were conducted twice in a month on a regular basis at Design Center of the Philippines(DCP). CCP COmplex, Roxas BLBD, Pasay City. Numerous invites to conduct livelihood seminars, workshops and outreached programs grew.

In a short period of time we had produced the FIRST SOLAR PV INSTALLER NC2 trainer in the whole of Luzon and all the 20plus trainers got their EPAS NC2.
Our ride was also bumpy, while a few of the the trainers who cannot conform and doesn’t have the heart to serve had opted to have another path, more and more DIYs had joined and made us even stronger.
We are all thankful for all the trust, full support and warm camaraderie of members,trainers, volunteers and partners. We wouldn’t be this strong and garner all these recognition, Heroes Award, certificates without all of you. MARAMING SALAMAT PO SA INYONG LAHAT, LET US CONTINUE TO BE #MASAINCSOLARADVOCATES AND CONTINUE TO #bethelight of #MASAInc
