Powerpedia, a San Diego-based renewable energy consultancy (http://powerpedia.com) has announced the formation of the nonprofit organization “#GetChargedUp” (http://GetChargedUp.net) to facilitate a multi-year commitment of providing free solar systems to orphanages throughout Baja Mexico and beyond, under its flagship program #EmpowerOrphans.
“I recently had a chance to spend the day with children and volunteers at the Rancho de Los Niños orphanage in Baja, Mexico and it was an extraordinary experience for me,” said Faisal El Azzouzi, Principal at Powerpedia and founder of #GetChargedUp. “It is truly humbling to see the hard work put forth by the staff and the passion of the volunteers at the orphanage. Nearly 70 children live there, and they deserve all the help we can give. We couldn’t be happier to contribute with clean electricity and high-tech education to take care of some of their basic needs today, and help prepare them for a better tomorrow.”
