Ohio Sustainable Living Project

Despite the availability of technical solutions, over a billion people are still without any form of electricity and 3 billion people still cook over open fires.

This project emphasizes practical power: renewable, locally-sourced, sustainable energy solutions which lift people out of poverty.

  • Energy enables people to work their way out of poverty.
  • Energy provides better access to education and other basic services.
  • Energy improves health and wellbeing, especially for women and children.

The Sustainable Living Project is committed to sustainable energy because we know from our work on the ground that renewable energy sources are a powerful solution to many of the world’s greatest challenges, such as building sustainable communities, ending poverty, increasing access to healthcare, and more.
