10Power is a Social Impact Enterprise
10Power works together with local partners to develop and finance commercial-scale solar projects in Haiti, making renewable energy affordable and accessible for tangible improvements in livelihood and prosperity. The company views renewable energy as the key to provide access to clean water, gender empowerment, livelihood improvement, education and technology. 10Power is a for-profit, social impact enterprise. We reinvest revenue to grow our positive impact in the communities we serve.
Sustainable Development Goals
10Power measures impact in accordance with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. As described on the UN Sustainable Development website:
“The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.”
Specifically, 10Power is focused on the Sustainable Development Goals:
1) No Poverty
5) Gender Empowerment
7) Affordable, Clean Energy for All
13) Climate Action NOW
