WINTER PARK, Fla. (July 26, 2021) — One of Atlantic Key Energy’s core values is to display a “servant’s heart”—not just by helping customers save with the sun with excellent service, but by serving as a force of good in the world as a whole. Recently, the company was honored for the depth of its impact.
GivePower, a nonprofit that provides solar-powered solutions in the developing world, recently recognized Atlantic Key Energy as a valued donor to the cause. Atlantic Key Energy has donated $44,320 in the last year, helping to provide 2,226 people in need with access to clean water.
Atlantic Key Energy was recognized in a ceremony with GivePower on July 26, 2021.
“We’re passionate about what we do because we believe in the power of solar energy,” said Brian Schonbeck, CEO of Atlantic Key Energy. “GivePower believes in that, too, and when we saw what they’re able to do with clean power, we knew we wanted to be part of the change. We’re very proud to support this fantastic nonprofit and look forward to doing even more good in the future.”
GivePower’s Solar Water Farms desalinate sea and brackish water using solar power. The first farm was deployed in Kiunga, Kenya, in 2018. By the end of this year, the organization plans to have 10 farms in operation delivering access to clean water for up to 225,000 people every day. In addition, GivePower has electrified 2,497 schools and constructed 31 other solar projects in 23 countries improving the lives of more than half a million people.
Atlantic Key Energy donates $20 for every installation it completes. Each $20 contribution funds one person’s access to clean water for the next 20 years. That means, when customers choose Atlantic Key Energy for their solar installation, they’re not just doing their part for the environment or saving money—they’re helping the global community.
“This company puts its money where its mouth is with their commitment to giving back. AKE is not only driving the adoption of clean energy in the US but is helping to ensure that those in the developing world benefit from solar energy, too. We are so proud to have them as a partner in bringing clean water produced with clean energy to people that truly need it,” said Aparna Mohla, Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at GivePower.
In addition to its work with GivePower, Atlantic Key Energy partners with many nonprofits in the local communities they serve including Feed Fosters in Northwest Florida and more.
