Blue Raven Solar Partners with GivePower to Provide Clean Drinking Water Through Solar Powered Systems
For Every Solar Customer, Blue Raven Solar will Donate $20 to Provide Clean Drinking Water Through GIvePower’s Solar-Powered Desalination Farms
Orem, UT, September 5, 2019—Blue Raven Solar announced a new partnership with GivePower, a non-profit organization that provides solar energy solutions to developing regions that need it most. For every customer who goes solar with Blue Raven, the Utah-based company will make a $20 donation via the GivePower GivePartner Program. With GivePower’s innovative, solar-powered water desalination farms, a $20 investment provides one person in need access to safe drinking water for up to 20 years.
“We are grateful to our customers for making the switch to renewable energy and for giving us the chance to contribute even more broadly,” said Ben Peterson, CEO of Blue Raven Solar.
Waterborne disease is the planet’s leading killer. About 844 million people lack access to clean drinking water, and more than 3.4 million people die each year due to waterborne diseases, including 300,000 children.
In addition to waterborne disease, water scarcity on a broader scale is an increasing epidemic. More than 2 billion people currently live in water-scarce regions and as many as 3.5 billion could experience water scarcity by 2025.
GivePower’s boldest mission is to help alleviate the global water crisis by delivering clean, sustainable and affordable water to people who need it most. Powered entirely by solar energy, GivePower’s desalination systems are housed in 20-foot shipping containers and capable of transforming 70,000 liters of brackish and/or seawater into clean, drinkable water supporting the needs of up to 35,000 people every day.
“Waterborne disease is the planet’s leading killer, and GivePower is well-positioned to help address this global crisis,” said Peterson. “We are thankful to have the opportunity to power life’s basic needs in developing regions of the world through solar-based solutions.”
