GivePower  
Foundation

Bringing light to schools in need

For every megawatt of residential solar power SolarCity installs in 2014, the GivePower Foundation will donate a solar power system and battery to a school without electricity.

Every solar home makes a difference

When you go solar, you're helping to build a cleaner future for your home and for the world.

Together we can do more

It takes approximately 160 solar homes to produce one megawatt.

About the Give Power Foundation:
Our Mission

To make clean power accessible to those who need it most and reduce the world’s dependence on finite, polluting power sources.

About us

The GivePower Foundation is a SolarCity nonprofit organization committed to extending the environmental and social benefits of clean energy across the world. We’ve teamed with buildOn, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building schools in some of the economically poorest countries in the world, including Nicaragua, Haiti, Malawi, Mali, Nepal and Senegal. Through our partnership, we will train buildOn employees and work closely with local communities to install and maintain their solar power systems.
