Non-profit powers energy at local events

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A new local non-profit can power your event through their solar panel generators. Clean Energy can power an event without a single power outlet nearby. They promise to save you money all while saving the environment.

The launch party for the non-profit showed off the portable generators at the Mellow Mushroom, where they provided power for the music, lighting and a water pump at the event.

The portable panels generate power through the sun and can last for hours.

The launch party included the participation from several other non-profits including Stop Titan and Carolina Green Building.

The director of this non-profit who also sells the portable panels partnered with Cape Fear Community College to create a scholarship fund in an effort to promote energy sustainability.
