The best part of Thanksgiving is reflecting on what and who we’re grateful for. This year, Brooklyn SolarWorks pondered the luxury of light. We’re so proud of the fact that we help New Yorkers attain electrical independence every single day. This got the BSW team thinking about those who don’t have the simple comfort of flipping a light switch every night when it becomes dark.
In many communities around the world, as soon as the sun goes down, children can’t study, businesses must close, and women are less safe walking outside. The energy options are usually either unaffordable, unreliable, or non-existent.
This inspired us to partner with our Brooklyn-based solar friends at MPOWERED by taking part in their Give Luci program. The program enables anyone to donate solar lights which are primarily used for search & rescue missions as well as disaster relief. In an everyday context, these solar lights help to improve community health, safety, and education initiatives. So far, the program has spread solar to over 3 million people.
Brooklyn SolarWorks donated 100 solar lights which will be distributed to those living without access to clean, reliable, or affordable energy. This clean energy option will provide a more economical and environmentally friendly approach to everyday tasks.
