WM Supporting Energy Access in Puerto Rico
Transforming the way we power our planet continues to guide our business and inspire our initiatives. Following an impactful inaugural collaboration with the non-profit Let’s Share the Sun earlier this year, Wood Mackenzie has committed to strengthening our relationship with the organization as a meaningful way to exercise our brand purpose.
Our support earlier this year, together with backing from Verisk, provided a solar array and a battery back-up system on ten households with at least one dependency on a medical device in Adjuntas, Puerto Rico. During Hurricane Fiona in September, these systems withstood the storm and provided uninterrupted power for the families, compared to most of the island where the power grid had gone offline.
Planning has already begun for the 2023 project, which will expand our focus of serving impoverished communities with a critical need for reliable power. We’re excited that in March 2023, our scope will include providing support to a women’s shelter for those recovering from domestic violence, which is a critical challenge on the island.
This additional project in 2023 will provide the shelter with:
- reliable power supply for the facility’s residents.
- financial relief, enabling operating budget to be directed to critical programming rather than paying utility bills.
Please show your support for this important project and donate today. Together, we can accelerate the transition for these communities to a more sustainable future by raising funds to provide stability in power supply, boost economic opportunity, and establish energy equality.
