An estimated 1.2 billion people worldwide do not have access to electricity, denying them many of the benefits of the modern world. Empowered by Light (EBL) believes that hope and innovation start with access to clean power. Their mission is to improve lives and the environment through renewable energy technologies.
They hope to show that developing nations can leapfrog decades of fossil fuel infrastructure development by powering their countries with renewable energy today. EBL’s goal is to build multiple demonstration projects around the world, improving the lives and the environment of communities surrounding those projects and further demonstrating the importance, feasibility, and sustainability of electrifying very remote and critical areas around the world with 100 percent clean renewable energy.
