Partnership with Givepower

Waterborne disease is the planet’s leading killer. It’s no surprise when you consider that three out of ten people, worldwide, lack access to a safe, reliable source of water in their home. But, there is a lot that we can do to help.

In partnership with the GivePower Foundation*, we have the opportunity to make a difference in tens of thousands of lives.  GivePower has developed an innovative solar-powered desalination system that is sustainable and highly cost-effective. In fact, a single penny can give one person access to safe drinking water for an entire day. 

Relevant Facts:

  • Some 3 in 10 people worldwide, or 2.1 billion, lack access to safe, readily available water at home.1
  • 844 million people do not have even a basic drinking water service.2
  • 263 million people have to spend over 30 minutes per trip collecting water from sources outside the home.3
  • 159 million still drink untreated water from surface water sources, such as streams or lakes.4
  • An estimated 443 million school days are lost each year from water-related illness.5
  • Water and sanitation interventions are cost effective across all world regions. These interventions were demonstrated to produce economic benefits ranging from $5-46 USD for every $1 USD invested.6

OwlGen Solar is proud to make a donation of 1 penny per watt to GivePower for every solar installation completed. By working with us, you’ll not only enjoy all of the benefits of using clean, renewable energy but will also be helping those who need it most.
