Tel-Aviv, Israel, Apr. 25, 2019 – Wi-Charge, the leader in long-range wireless power technology, today announced that 100 percent of the net proceeds from specially-designed “Life is Better without Wires” T-shirt and other merchandise sales will directly benefit the Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF). Since 1990, SELF has completed solar energy projects in more than 25 countries and pioneered unique applications of solar power such as drip irrigation in Benin, health care in Haiti, telemedicine in the Amazon rainforest, online learning in South Africa and microenterprise development in Nigeria.
“We thank Wi-Charge for partnering with the Solar Electric Fund and helping us bring energy to people living in energy poverty in remote corners of the world. Like Wi-Charge, we are always looking for innovative ways to use the power of light to address a multiplicity of needs,” said Robert Freling, Executive Director of the Solar Electric Fund. “We believe that Wi-Charge is a pioneer in the energy transmission industry, where there’s immense opportunity to fundamentally change the way we interact with devices in our daily lives – we look forward to seeing them continue to ascend as the wireless power market matures.”
The campaign uses five specially-designed “Life’s better without wires” graphics that won a competition featuring over 50 freelance artists. They are available on shirts, bags and a variety of other products. 100% of the net proceeds will benefit SELF.
SELF’s Whole Village Development Model takes an integrated approach to community empowerment using a mix of solar energy solutions to improve the lives of people who don’t have access to electricity. By working closely with communities and adhering to the organization’s operating principles of SELF Determination, SELF Help and SELF Reliance, it seeks to provide benefits in education, health, water and agriculture, enterprise and community.
“While harnessing light to bring wireless power to developed countries, we wanted to help SELF harness light to bring electricity and clean water to developing countries” said Yuval Boger, CMO at Wi-Charge. “We’re pleased to partner with the Solar Electric Fund and are humbled by the transformative projects they are undertaking in energy impoverished communities.”
