Two Installations Completed October 20th 2017


As of mid October 2017, Puerto Rico is still reeling from Hurricane Maria, with the majority of the island without power, and more than 50 percent without access to clean drinking water.  With our partners SunRun and GivePower, together with many dedicated individuals, Empowered by Light has started installing solar micro grids, water desalination and purification systems and water production systems to Puerto Rican fire stations and communities.  We are demonstrating that restoring power and other critical resources to these devastated areas with renewable energy technology can happen quickly and create better resilience for future extreme weather events.  BUT we need your help.  We want to install these technologies in ALL fire stations in Puerto Rico, to help all communities now, and help prepare them for the future.
