BE Solar in pledge to Bahamas
BE Solar have pledged to donate $20 per solar panel sold in the month of September towards Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in the Bahamas.
BE Solar recognizes that Climate Change continues to affect the most vulnerable societies and that collectively we must do more to stop damaging our planet. Every solar panel that is installed helps stop fossil fuel from being consumed, and helps to reduce the effects of Climate Change.
Stuart Kriendler, Managing Director at BE Solar stated “We were inspired by the government for encouraging Bermuda to support these vulnerable communities that have experienced catastrophes as a result of Climate Change.”
Kriendler explained, “The advent of more extreme natural disasters should be a reminder of what the future may hold if we do not collectively address Climate Change. Extreme Heat Waves, Floods, Fires and Hurricanes are all becoming far too common.“
As of Friday, September 6th 2019, BE Solar have raised $1,440 for the Bahamas’ hurricane initiative.
This appeal is supported by the Rocky Mountain Institute called the “Building Back Better: A Call to Action for a Resilient and Renewable Future for The Bahamas”.
Earlier in 2019, BE Solar initiated a similar month long fundraising program where for each solar panel sold, the company donated $20 towards the disaster created by Cyclone Ida in Mozambique in March 2019. Over 1,000 people were killed and hundreds of thousands became homeless overnight by this horrific storm. A total of 84 solar electric panels were sold which raised $1,680 for the appeal and was donated to the Mozambique Relief
BE Solar would like to extend great appreciation to clients that supported the previous Mozambique initiative, and look forward to working with new solar clients to raise funds to assist our brothers and sisters in the Bahamas.
