Ending Solar Poverty
In August 2018, The Rogovy Foundation provided a developmental grant to Beyond the Light‘s solar project in Nicaragua, installing energy kits for homes without electricity, providing lights and USB charging for cell phones, fans and radio. In addition, they are adding solar kits to the local water system, which will add sustainable access to clean drinking water for the village of El Tomate. Plans are also in place to assemble and install sustainable solar energy in El Carmen and La Mora in Nicaragua at the end of the year.
Beyond the Light’s mission is to end energy poverty by providing the resources necessary to bring electricity to homes and training locals to build and repair solar systems for their communities. The dedicated staff at Beyond the Light leave behind a process to provide sustainable energy solutions and job creation.
