Today, 1.3 billion people are living without electricity and rely on dangerous kerosene lamps to provide light. New Vision Renewable Energy has developed portable #solar lights to replace lethal kerosene lamps for those in impoverished communities. http://www.solarreviews.com/news/solar-brightens-rooms-and-spirits-in-underprivileged-communities/
Community #solar is ideal for low-income residents who rent their homes and are looking to save money on their energy bill. Throughout the US, programs are being introduced to make community solar affordable to those in disadvantaged neighborhoods, creating a sense of empowerment and energy independence. http://easycleanenergy.com/cecblog/index.php/community-solar-can-empower-low-income-neighborhoods/
