For every megawatt of residential solar power SolarCity installs in 2014, the Give Power Foundation will donate a solar power system and battery to a school without electricity.
That's 20% of the world's population
in the dark.
When you go solar, you're helping to build a cleaner future for your home and for the world.
It takes approximately 160 solar homes to produce one megawatt.
Solar power lets us light up schools in parts of the world where there is no other source of electricity.
It gives people in remote areas the chance to learn in the evening and creates a place where they can come together and celebrate.
To make clean power accessible to those who need it most and reduce the world’s dependence on finite, polluting power sources.

The Give Power 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.
