Kiwi Energy Teams Up With MPOWERD this Holiday Season To Give the Gift of Light

Kiwi Energy, a leading New York and Ohio energy retailer offering customers eco-conscious products are excited to announce that it will be partnering with MPOWERD® this holiday season in order to help bring light to the billions of people in developing countries living without electricity. Each new customer that enrolls with Kiwi Energy will receive a Luci® solar light, and additionally, for each enrollment, a Luci solar light will be donated to someone in the developing world living without electricity on their behalf.

MPOWERD’s Luci lights tap into a source of light that’s limitless and readily available to everyone on our planet – the sun. Extremely versatile, reliable and sophisticated, Luci adds brilliant design to solar. MPOWERD has positively impacted more than 3.3 million people in over 90 countries, and averted over 680,000 tons of CO2, providing clean light to those living without electricity.

By working with hundreds of community partners, including NGOs and non-profits, MPOWERD distributes Luci solar lights to people in developing countries, like Haiti, Nepal, Kenya, and the Philippines. In many places throughout these countries, as soon as the sun goes down, children aren’t able to study, businesses have no choice but to close, women are less safe walking outside, and so on. Luci solar lights provide people without energy access the opportunity to extend their activities past sunset. Children can study and read in the evenings, entrepreneurs can continue working, and local businesses can stay open later.

“MPOWERD cannot tackle this global challenge alone and Kiwi Energy is leading the private sector by example by participating in the solution of offering a clean alternative to both their customers and those who are in need.” – John Salzinger, Founder, MPOWERD.

Kiwi Energy is committed to sustainability. This unique gift-giving program with MPOWERD is one of the company’s many initiatives aimed at helping make the world a better place. Through the Ecogold Environmental Fund, Kiwi Energy can support non-profit groups running sustainability projects year-round. The Ecogold Environmental fund is privately funded with contributions from Kiwi Energy.

“With today’s modern technology, it’s hard to imagine that there are still over three billion people throughout the world who lack access to clean, reliable, or affordable energy. These people rely on polluting technologies for household tasks and are hindered to complete simple daily chores, such as cooking dinner (without light!) safely and efficiently. We’re extremely excited to work with MPOWERD this holiday season in order to help bring safe light to those in need and to also raise awareness of such an important cause to our customers.” – Richard Booth, President of Retail Operations, Kiwi Energy.
