Palm City, Fla., U.S.A. - SOL Inc.’s solar lights are shining brightly all night long, expanding relief and recovery efforts at several Port-au-Prince sites following the devastating earthquake on January 12, 2010. Solar lights donated by SOL Inc have already been installed at University Hospital, International Airport, UN Logistics Base and Hotel Montana within days of the disaster for quick, immediate and reliable illumination for victims and volunteers.

The first phase of SOL Inc.’s pledge to provide $300,000 in solar lights has been reached as the company has manufactured and packaged over 130 solar light systems ready for shipment. Although approximately 1/3 of the lights are already delivered or in transit to the earthquake-ravaged nation, SOL Inc. is still seeking air cargo or ocean freight transportation assistance for the remaining lights from FL to Haiti.

Since January 19, 2010, SOL Inc.’s team has been on the ground in Haiti ensuring lights are secured, delivered, and effectively installed. The team reports overwhelming positive response to our efforts.
