Sol, Inc. TSL Series is one of the many solar lights systems headed to Haiti to assist with rescue and rebuilding efforts

Palm City, Fla., U.S.A. - Millions of dollars of relief may never reach Haitians in time unless roadways, relief camps, hospitals and distribution areas can operate past dark.

Donating $300,000 and organizing relief efforts for Haiti, Sol, Inc. is no stranger to the affect solar lights have on safety and security. With over 40,000 solar lighting systems installed in over 60 countries on six continents, Sol, Inc. CEO Rick Schuett knew that the Sol, Inc. team had the expertise and desire to make a real difference.

"The Board of Directors chaired by Michael Sonnenfeldt, along with Sol, Inc. employees felt compelled to assist the victims of this earthquake." said Rick Schuett, CEO of Sol, Inc. "We know that once our solar lighting systems are installed, we will affectively double the amount of available relief effort time by allowing aid workers and rescuers to work around the clock when previously operations had to cease at dusk. In addition, our lighting systems will provide safety and security as well as being a hallmark that civility is being restored to the area."

The total donation is expected to exceed $400,000 with assistance from suppliers, donations and a solar light matching program.

Facilitating the assistance to Haiti is not a small task.

Sol, Inc. is working with Florida Congressman Rooney's Stuart office, several relief agencies and government agencies to transport the solar lights from Florida and get them installed in Haiti as quickly as possible. Missionary Flights International - missionaryflights.org , based in Ft. Piece has graciously agreed to fly some of the solar lighting system as well as Sol, Inc. volunteers. Sol, Inc. is working with other relief organization such as Hands On Disaster Response - hodr.org, to coordinate the installation, local logistics and security for the traveling team.

In addition, Sol. Inc is dispatching a 44' catamaran donated by local entrepreneur Deane Blazie of Jupiter Island, which is scheduled to leave late Sunday or Monday (depending on weather). The boat will remain in Haiti for the next several weeks providing ground support and logistics.

Several of Sol, Inc.'s suppliers have generously donated time and materials including Alliance Composites Inc., C & L Technologies, Citizen Electronics, Haze Battery U.S.A, Karl Lust and SPOSTO Interactive, allowing Sol, Inc. to increase the number of solar light systems that will be available to the relief efforts.

"Our efforts will continue," said Schuett. "If you or your organization would like to donate money, medical supplies, water or equipment, please contact us immediately. Sol, Inc. is also actively seeking air and ocean transportation avenues for forthcoming donations."

Victor Sotolongo is coordinating the Solar Lights Donation logistics for Sol, Inc. Call, text or email him at 772.205-9987 or v.sotolongo@solarlighting.com

Sol will be providing additional lights through a special ongoing Solar Lights for Haiti matching program it has established. For every solar light system purchased, Sol Inc. will match the donation with a second solar light system.
