New Vision Renewable Energy at a Glance

A Distinct Identity

As a 501 c-3 organization, New Vision Renewable Energy knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. New Vison was started as a local community training center. Over the years we have developed into an international community organization that brings solar lights (with the help of local school students who put the light kits together as part of their STEM education) to those in our world that do not have a clean source of light to use, we mentor at risk youth in our community through our peer and parent mentoring, and we re-energize our community through community recreation projects.
