Founded in 2017, the del Sol Foundation for Energy Security began as a humanitarian effort to help the citizens of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. 

Today we are actively installing solar micro-grids to help provide reliable power and give them a means to rebuild the island. Our goal is to extend these humanitarian efforts into regions of the world that face climate disasters.


Our Mission

The del Sol Foundation for Energy Security provides aid to individuals and entire communities in need, including those impacted by energy instability, who would benefit from clean, reliable and affordable energy. 

“The reality is that without the support of sonnen, our project never would have been able to offer services. Thanks to sonnen, we have already saved four lives and have provided medical services to 9,000 low income people from 8 isolated communities that have been forgotten by the government. sonnen and the del Sol Foundation have given us the opportunity to bring hope to these communities affected by the worst natural disaster in our history”
— Valentin, OTOAO Community organizer
