The Sturm College of Law’s International Law Society is partnering with the Natural Resources and Environmental Law Society to “Denver Lights the Night.” This upcoming event that supports Elephant Energy’s renewable energy development in Namibia, Zambia, and Navajo Nation. The event will take place Tuesday, October 16 from 6-8 p.m. at the law school.
There are 1.3 billion people around the world who do not have access to electricity. Lack of access to energy remains one of the key factors stifling development with off-grid communities forced to spend up to 20% of their income on expensive energy options. Elephant Energy combines the breakthrough potential of solar technology with a village-based sales model to deliver energy to poor households, resulting in money savings, improved quality of life, and conservation of natural resources.
Elephant Energy is a non-profit organization which seeks to improve the quality of life in developing communities by pioneering ventures that provide access to appropriate sustainable energy technologies. Elephant Energy works in Namibia and Zambia, Africa, and its subsidiary organization, Eagle Energy, works on the Navajo Nation, USA. Check out www.elephantenergy.org for more information or view their 2011 Annual Report.
The gathering is a time for our supporters to learn about Elephant Energy’s progress on the ground in 2012, and generally eat, drink, and be merry. The event is FREE, and donations are optional but appreciated. All donations will receive a minimum 30% match from www.globalgiving.org. Cash and check will be accepted at the event. The donations collected at the event will support Eagle Energy’s expansion into the Bennett Freeze area on the Navajo Nation and Elephant Energy’s Women’s Energy Project.
