10Power

|

USA & Haiti

10Power, a B-Corp, provides project management and financing for renewable energy projects in under-served communities internationally. Energy is the backbone that supports advancement in quality of life, yet close to one-fifth of humans on the planet, 1.3 billion people, lack access to electricity. Without consistent power, it is impossible to provide running water, refrigeration of food or vaccines, or access to information technology and global markets. Beginning with solar PV projects for businesses, clinics and schools in Haiti, 10Power is creating a blueprint for sustainable development that can be scaled across the globe.
