SolarCity's GivePower Foundation To Be Honored At buildOn's Bay Area Dinner

by Jeremy Lindy · June 2, 2016

This year, buildOn is honoring SolarCity's GivePower Foundation for their efforts and commitment to sustainability, service and education at their annual dinner. Since first teaming up in 2013, buildOn and SolarCity have now illuminated more than 200 schools with clean, sustainable solar power in Nicaragua, Haiti, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Nepal and Malawi. For every megawatt of solar power SolarCity installs in 2016, the GivePower Foundation will donate a solar power system and battery to a school without electricity.

The buildOn solar-equipped schools can now stay open after dark, providing safe spaces where communities can work after dark and have access to light. Since 1991, buildOn has constructed 919 schools worldwide, with more than 120,000 children, parents and grandparents attending these schools every day. 

The buildOn Bay Area Dinner is a celebration of solidarity. This inspiring evening unites over 400 corporate executives, young professionals and community leaders to recognize the work of buildOn’s incredible young people here in the Bay Area. The dinner will be taking place at 6:00pm on June 3rd at the iconic San Francisco City Hall located at 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place San Francisco, CA.
