The fact that a great number of the world’s population still does not have access to sustainable energy feels frustrating. It is surprising to know that despite the technological advances present today, the urge to provide a more important commodity seems to be overlooked. Local governments, or even private sectors, have yet to start the initiative to manage the provision and availability of sustainable energy to neighborhoods in far-flung places disadvantaged with the least privilege.
The absence of sustainable energy in these neighborhoods does not only tackle the lack of comfort in their everyday living but also of not having the basic access to healthcare. If a community strives without access to a comfortable basic living and healthcare, what more could they not afford?
Fortunately, a beaming hope in Solevolt Energy Systems, through its founders, CEO Bradley Mellicker and COO Rosalia Gitau, could be the answer to one of the most pressing issues this society has ever faced. For Solevolt, providing a sustainable energy through generators using renewable energy, will not only address the lack of basic needs but could possibly be the answer to uplift these neighborhoods from poverty.
So far, this initiative has reached people that made great impacts in their lives. A commercial carpenter in Haiti who used to have problematic deals of not having enough profit now enjoys the perks of a $300 savings in 15 days from switching to the Solevolt generator from his previous outdated generator. He can even provide comfort to his own household at night without shelling out an extra. Another proven social use of Solevolt was seen during Hurricane Matthew in 2016 when a generator unit was loaned generously by the company that made thousands of evacuees contact their loved ones letting them know they were safe.
With their vision to provide sustainable energy without harming the environment, Solevolt proved that a simple act of caring can go a long way. Its founders only want the best to be passed on to the next generation and more importantly, equal opportunities for everyone. Solevolt wants to make sure that their initiative and solution provides not only a profitable machinery but also satisfaction to environmental and social responsibilities, solidifying an ideal business model.
