Aptos Solar Technology, a supplier of high-performance solar modules, announced a cool partnership with GivePower, a non-profit organization committed to deploying renewable energy solutions in developing regions. GivePower aims to address the planet’s leading cause of death, waterborne disease. Using solar energy and battery storage, GivePower constructs desalination systems capable of providing up to 35,000 people with safe drinking water every day.
In this new partnership, each solar panel that Aptos Solar Technology sells will result in a donation of its profits to GivePower. Aptos is the first solar module manufacturer to make such a pledge under GivePower’s GivePartner Program.
“As a new company, we find it absolutely necessary to cultivate a culture of purpose beyond profit. We empower our employees by sharing a portion of our gain with those that need a helping hand,” said Alex Kim, CFO & Co-Founder of Aptos Solar Technology.
Aptos Solar Technology joins forces with GivePower following its recent placement on Loan Pal’s approved vendor list. LoanPal is an official GivePower partner and a large contributor. The relationship between Loan Pal and GivePower inspired the Aptos Solar team and initiated an immediate collaboration.
“As a self-made, Vietnamese man that immigrated to the U.S. as a young boy, I have personally experienced kindness and generosity from others. It is my mission to return the goodness I’ve received. I’m very proud of my team. We are working incredibly hard to make solar energy affordable and obtainable across the globe,” said Frank Pham, CEO & Co-founder of Aptos Solar Technology.
100% of the donations will be used to provide renewable energy and clean water to regions in need.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
