A non-profit that provides marginalized communities with locally owned renewable energy.
When communities generate their own power, they gain the power to shape their own future
How it works:
You donate online.
We spend 100% on financing renewable energy projects in marginalized communities.
They can spend the money coming from the system to repay the cost and fund local projects.
We get back our investment over time and re-spend it on more projects. That way your donation continues to make a lasting impact! Over and over again.
We've partnered with The Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center to build a 22 kW solar install at Anpo Wicahpi, the Pine Ridge Girls School.
The Pine Ridge Reservation is one of the poorest communities in the western hemisphere - and it's smack dab in the middle of the US.
Energy from our solar install will offset electrical bills, so that Anpo Wicahpi can focus the important stuff - educating a new generation of young, female Lakota leaders.
Over their lifetime, these panels will produce close to 1,500 MegaWatt hours, or over $150,000 in savings for the school.

20 kW Solar @ KILI Radio
The installation of a 20 kW solar array is underway at the KILI Radio Station - The Voice of the Lakota Nation - and is scheduled to be completed by late September, 2018. This installation will help offset a significant operational expense, freeing up a sizable portion of their budget so they can do more good for the community. InOurHands is proud to partner with Red Cloud Renewable to make this project happen.
