EMPOWERMENT SOLAR LAUNCHES INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN TO ENERGIZE THE MIDDLE EAST

The company seeks to raise $50,000 in forty days to fund staff training, initial projects, and startup costs.

Washington, DC - Empowerment Solar launched their first fundraising campaign on Indiegogo today to fund its mission of providing distributed solar electricity systems to communities across the Middle East and North Africa. The company seeks to raise $50,000 in forty days to fund staff training, initial projects, and startup costs.


"My U.S. Marine Corps experience in Iraq showed me how communities throughout the Middle East and North Africa have suffered without reliable electricity," stated Empowerment Solar Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Morgenstein. "I have since dedicated my career to helping solve this problem, and through Empowerment Solar, we will be able to give these communities the energy they need to help businesses grow and families thrive. As these communities develop, we are helping create a more stable and peaceful Middle East through solar power."

The Indiegogo campaign can be viewed at www.empowermentsolar.com/indiegogo and continues through December 20, 2015. There are a variety of perks available for contributions. The campaign also kicks off with a special event Monday, November 9, 2015 from 5-8:30 PM EST at Poste at 700 F St NW, Washington, DC 20004.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
