Powerpedia, a San Diego-based renewable energy consultancy has announced the formation of the nonprofit organization "#GetChargedUp" to facilitate a multi-year commitment of providing free solar systems to orphanages throughout Baja Mexico and beyond, under its flagship program #EmpowerOrphans.

"I recently had a chance to spend the day with children and volunteers at the Rancho de Los Ninos orphanage in Baja, Mexico and it was an extraordinary experience for me," said Faisal El Azzouzi, Principal at Powerpedia and founder of #GetChargedUp. "It is truly humbling to see the hard work put forth by the staff and the passion of the volunteers at the orphanage.

Nearly 70 children live there, and they deserve all the help we can give. We couldn't be happier to contribute with clean electricity and high-tech education to take care of some of their basic needs today, and help prepare them for a better tomorrow."

#GetChargedUp maintains two goals as their core mission. The first goal is to provide clean electricity to orphanages through solar system installations, and the second is to teach coding and meditation by equipping computer labs and teaching innovative and skill building curriculums.

The first project donation by #GetChargedUp is a 10 Kilowatt solar electric system that will provide the Rancho De Los Ninos Orphanage with much needed savings over the projected 25+ year lifetime of the system.

"Having solar power is a wonderful gift," says George Perez who is a Board Member of Corazon De Vida, which provides monthly financial support for its orphanages. "This means the directors of Rancho de Los Ninos can redeploy the money they are saving for food, medical help, water bills, and most importantly towards education so that the children can be prepared for their future."

#GetChargedUp is also receiving free services from cThru Media to promote the support of the orphanages needing assistance as well as pointing donors to a crowd funding site via http://GetChargedUp.net. Companies and individuals looking to support children struggling in orphanages are encouraged to visit the website and make a donation.

"We are grateful to GET CHARGED UP for helping the children of Rancho de Los Ninos," added George Perez. "Taking care of basic needs is our most difficult challenge as we help more than 400 children in 10 different orphanages."
