A new campaign lead by the Solar Electric Light Fund is on firm footing now, and MarketWatch discussed today what they’re up to. For a basic understanding of what this campaign proposes to do, read the below excerpt:
“The Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF), a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit working to eliminate energy poverty through the use of solar power, today announced that it is launching ‘Energy is a Human Right,’ a campaign to provide a voice to the nearly 1.5 billion people around the world living without access to electricity and other forms of modern energy. It is also calling upon the international development community and general public to join the campaign by visiting www.EnergyIsAHumanRight.com to show their support for those living in energy poverty, and to learn how they can help provide energy access to assist in their economic, education, health and agricultural development.”
As a small local business and as a solar equipment installer in Phoenix, AZ, we support the SELF campaign. We invite and encourage Arizonans to visit the campaign’s website by clicking here.
SELF has been using solar energy across the world for more than a decade, bringing light and indeed hope to regions of the world that had neither. The story of SELF and their new human rights campaign tells the story of the power of solar energy–it’s not just a way to cheapen energy costs in places like the United States, it’s also a way to BRING any kind of energy to places it has never previously been even imagined.
We wish the Energy is a Human Right campaign all the best and will continue to track their progress and keep you posted.
