Energy is the backbone to success. Everything that we do depends on access to this vital resource. Energy powers our computers so we can finish our homework and graduate. It charges our cell phones so we can call our loved ones when we need to hear a friendly voice. It protects us from frigid temperatures when we turn the heat on. It powers our lights when we are meeting a tight deadline for work after the sun goes down. It feeds us, warms us, and connects us to one another. It doesn’t just help us thrive—it helps us survive.
But not everyone can afford energy or have access to energy savings. Energy-saving appliances (e.g., smart washer/dryers, LED lighting, solar panels, etc.) can be difficult for those need it the most to afford. Others may not know that energy-saving programs exist to help with the costs, perhaps because of a language barrier or limited exposure. Connecting all households to energy savings could significantly support families in times of need.
This is MegaLight’s passion.
Our mission is to continuously build ways for communities of diverse needs to connect with utility residential lighting and energy programs. We believe that everyone should have access to affordable energy. We work with utility companies across the country to promote energy savings by developing new lighting technology, community outreach, and energy program partnerships. And we want to share this passion with you.
In this blog, we are excited to share testimonies, projects, research, new products, and news that catches our eye. Above all, we want to share how energy access is becoming available to more people so that they can reach their full potential. This is not just MegaLight’s story—this is everyone’s story. It can be your story, too.
