Power to the People is a non-profit organization that beings solar power to small rural communities in the developing world, installing  small solar electric systems on schools/community centers. Established  just two years ago,

Power to the People is mainly made up of eco-conscientious individuals in the solar industry. Volunteers help raise money to buy battery powered solar electric systems, and then escort the panels to rural communities and install the systems.
