According to RenewableEnergyMagazine, Arrow Electronics and nonprofit We Care Solar have won the 2019 Edison Award for Social Innovation for the joint development of Solar Suitcase 3.0, a portable and durable power system that provides sustainable energy for around-the-clock, effective obstetric care in remote and off-grid maternal health facilities around the world.
Worldwide, more than one billion people live without electricity – and 300,000 women die in childbirth, often turned away from health centers that lack power. We Care Solar is a nonprofit that has teamed with Arrow to ensure women have access to safe childbirth in well-lit health facilities and equip medical providers with the power to save lives.
The Edison Award winners were announced at a ceremony in New York City, New York, on April 4, 2019.
