Edward Norton: The Importance of Solar for All

During his keynote session, Norton will share his views on the role of solar in creating resiliency and social equality. He will also discuss the importance of distributed energy and how it has come to life through the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust's Chyulu Carbon Project, which he has been supporting for the past 25 years. One of the project’s newest initiatives focuses on building electric vehicle, energy storage, and solar infrastructure in remote parts of Kenya to help protect wildlife.

In support of this cause, Aurora Solar will donate five dollars to this initiative for every person who registers for Empower 2022, up to $25,000, and will match donations, up to an additional $25,000, made to this cause through the Aurora/MWCT GoFundMe page; donate here.
