Gamifying Impact: Leveraging Entertainment for Energy Access

Commitment by

goodXgames Inc.

In 2014, goodxgames committed to launch the Solar Games (TSG), a social gaming platform that will engage gamers and the entertainment industry to create environmental and social change in Haiti, where approximately 75% of households lack access to electricity. TSG will invest 50% of in-game spending and advertising profits to support a rural electrification program, which will include a revolving credit fund, education and technical capacity training for solar installers, energy access practitioners, and entrepreneurs. Goodxgames will work with partners such as Haiti Energie, Earth Spark International, and the Solar Electric Light Fund to identify these local organizations to support.
