The people of Puerto Rico-- still recovering from the devastating damage caused by Hurricane Maria, are facing a severe hurricane season. The pandemic has brought the island's tourism industry to a standstill and threatens food security, and in the midst of a drought, vulnerable communities now face the threat of water scarcity.
In the past two years, Empowered by Light has installed 14 solar and energy storage systems across the island, helping first responders continue to serve their communities, helping low-income elderly continue to receive critical care, helping keep the lights on for formerly abused children and helping strengthen communities overall. But there is still much work to be done!
Join actor Mark Ruffalo in helping us build more resilient communities with renewable, reliable solar energy systems for more community centers, more elderly care homes, and schools, and local farming cooperatives to reduce the island's dependency on imported food.
