SolarCity® today launched the Give Power Foundation™ to provide solar energy to those in need. For every megawatt of residential solar power that SolarCity installs in 2014, the company will donate a solar power system and battery combination to a school without access to electricity.

Initial recipients are expected to be in Haiti, Mali, Malawi and Nepal. The solar system will charge a battery pack to keep the school lit at night – allowing adults and others who aren’t able to learn during the day the freedom to convene at night in a well-lit environment.

SolarCity’s Give Power Foundation is a California non-profit, public benefit corporation with anticipation of being granted exempt status as a 501c3 organization in 2014.
