SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#APsystems–APsystems, the global leader in advanced microinverter technology for
the solar PV industry, today announced its commitment to Extend the Day,
a charity organization which gives solar reading lights to school
children in disadvantaged countries with no access to electricity.
APsystems will donate $1 to the nonprofit for every microinverter
purchased up to the amount of the charity’s 2017 administrative expenses
for its Lights for Learning program.
“APsystems is proud to partner with Extend the Day to bring light to
these children’s lives,” said Dr. Zhi-min Ling, APsystems Global
President & CEO. “We firmly believe in what Extend the Day is doing
around the world and are committed to helping them continue to achieve
measurable results with their Lights for Learning program.”
“This foundation commitment by APsystems is extraordinary,” said Extend
the Day Executive Director Jo Lonseth. “It allows us to focus on
expanding our reach and building on the successful projects we already
have in Kenya, Nepal and Myanmar. Success in life for children living in
disadvantaged communities often comes down to whether or not they can
continue their middle school education. These solar powered lights cost
nothing to operate and make it possible for school children to do
homework after dark, improve their grades, and stay in school.”
APsystems first learned about the impressive work that Extend the Day is
doing when the non-profit asked APsystems for help in designing a more
reliable, lightweight, and inexpensive solar powered light. As a world
leader in the development of innovative solar power electronic
solutions, APsystems was the right choice and eagerly worked with Extend
the Day to develop the ideal solution.
