About United Solar Initiative
By coupling solar panels with a clean water pump, USI offers a solution to mechanize traditionally hand-crank water pumps and effectively provide clean water to more people in need. World Vision is a champion in the effort to address the global issue of water poverty–lack of access to a consistent source of clean water–and USI has partnered to offer a solar solution to communities in countries throughout Africa in need of a reliable source of clean water.
USI works with both non-profit and for-profit companies in the U.S. to facilitate solar panel installations on schools and community centers primarily in the southeast. We bring together players in the solar industry to have an impact in an area that is local to the contributing parties. USI strongly believes in supporting local communities with solar solutions to grow and provide visibility to the thriving solar industry.
Whether you are aﬀiliated with a for-profit or non-profit we would love to talk to you about partnering with USI. Please visit our Contact Us page if you would like to reach out to USI about helping our eﬀorts to bring electricity to underdeveloped communities.
It’s amazing what a little electricity does, but even a little electricity costs money. Interested in donating to help bring power to an under-resourced community? Click “Donate Now” to invest in the mission of USI.
We are in constant need of quality volunteers interested in making an impact. Just let us know where you’re passionate and we’ll find a way to get you involved. Not sure what you’d like to do? That’s ok too. We’ll find a place for you to get plugged in.
If you’re interested in bringing solar power to your community in one of the regions we work, take some time to fill out our application. Just tell us the purpose of the system and how it can benefit the community and we’ll begin a conversation about how to make it a reality.
