SANTA FE, N.M., May 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ReneSola Ltd ("ReneSola") (NYSE: SOL), a leading brand and technology provider of solar photovoltaic ("PV") products, and Positive Energy, Inc. ("Positive Energy Solar"), New Mexico's leading residential and commercial solar installer, have announced three 2.5-kilowatt solar grants for non-profit organizations in Las Cruces, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
"Positive Energy Solar is committed to clean, affordable solar electricity in our communities," said Regina Wheeler, chief executive officer of Positive Energy Solar. "Through these grants, non-profits that might not otherwise be able to, can reduce long-term energy costs and use clean, renewable energy that is aligned with their values."
"ReneSola is humbled to have been asked by Positive Energy Solar to support a program that is providing solar for not only the most creative and deserving non-profits, but also for the community as a whole," said Brian Armentrout, director of marketing at ReneSola. "We'll use social media throughout the campaign, allowing people to help us decide where the systems will be best utilized. Both Positive Energy Solar and ReneSola understand the importance of providing such donations and capitalizing on this effort to educate the public about the tremendous financial and environmental benefits associated with solar electricity."
ReneSola's chief executive officer, Xianshou Li, added, "It is a pleasure to work with Positive Energy Solar to help non-profits utilize clean, renewable energy. We look forward to taking this step with them in advocating a broader use of solar power."
The first step in the process is for applicants to create a video about how having solar power would benefit their organization. The videos will be posted on the solar grants Facebook page and the organizations whose videos get the most likes will make it to the next stage of evaluation.
