“Making a difference in your community and the world.”
A commitment to community transformation is at the core of the Imani Energy vision. We believe that energy efficiency, solar power and other renewable sources of energy can play a major role in creating jobs, cleaning our environment and saving money where people need it most. That is why we are so focused on the engagement of low-income and people of color communities. In these communities residents pay a higher percentage of income for utilities and face significant barriers to inclusion in the “Green Economy.”
Our first solar power system was installed for an organization called A New Way of Life which helps formerly incarcerated women make the transition from prison back their families and communities. Our installed solar power system is reducing their utility costs, freeing up money that can meet the needs of the women they serve.
Since then we have worked with communities to install other systems and expanded to providing community education and training. For instance, Imani Energy pioneered a solar sales training with the Los Angeles Community College District to help people in transition gain skills to position themselves for solar industry jobs.
We are doing our part to make economic and social equity a reality in the Green Revolution. Contact us to see how we can help your community organization and residents cut utility expenses, generate local employment capacity and clean our precious environment.
