We aim to provide everyone, regardless of socioeconomic status or geographical location, with the ability to make meaningful contributions to limit the effects of climate change.
Helios United was founded on the belief that no individual, regardless of their socioeconomic status or geographical location, should be limited in how they fight climate change. To do this, we are creating a community that raises awareness and provides education about climate change, provides practical and easy to implement ways to reduce an individual’s carbon footprint, and invests all of the profits into generating renewable energy.
How It Works
Currently, we offer several services including; a search engine and news aggregation. When you use these pages we generate ad revenue. We also offer a carbon offset program where you can make a one monthly or one time contribution, and a store. When you use one of these services 100% of the profits will be used to invest in solar panels. By pooling funds we can get the best prices on solar panels and install them in the best geographical locations. This maximizes the amount of energy generated for the least amount of money.
Unlike other carbon offset organizations that allow you to offset your carbon emissions by planting trees we invest in solar. We do this because each solar installation generates income which will be used to invest in more solar panels. With this model we can amplify the carbon offset of small dollar donations.
