Carbon Offsetting

Taking Action

The average American household uses 867 Kilowatt Hours of electricity per month which is the equivalent to burning 675 pounds of coal or 1.5 barrels of oil monthly. Subsequently that means that the average American household releases 6 tons of green houses gasses every year. When you donate to Solar Village Project you offset your carbon footprint.

Calculate Your Carbon Footprint

“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”

— Jane Goodall

Each solar light we distribute effectively mitigates 1 ton of carbon emissions. How?

One solar light removes 1 kerosene lamp from daily use. 1 kerosene lamp emits on average 1 ton of green house gases over a 3 year period. The average minimum lifespan of the solar lights we distribute is 3 years. That means 1 solar light removes 1 kerosene lamp eliminating 1 ton of green house gases that otherwise would have been released into the atmosphere. That means a $10 donation, the cost of 1 solar light, will offset 1 ton of carbon emissions.
