Who we are?
Esdec Solar Group (ESG) is the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality rooftop solar racking and mounting systems and operates in Europe, North America, and Asia. It is developed for installers by installers.
Empowers is the Corporate Sustainable Responsibility arm of the global Esdec Solar Group. At ESG, we recognize that we have a more significant role in the world. Every day we strive to grow the network of solar installers and solar power consumers, not only for business purposes but also because we think about the world we want to give to our future generations. We believe solar power should be accessible to everyone and that education leads to empowerment.

“ESG Empowers supports projects that are beneficiary to individuals as well as to a green future for all. Every initiative shows that if we join forces, we all win. I am proud to be a part of this institution as chair of the board.”
“Being a member of the ESG Empowers board means that I am able to help create a future where green technology is embraced and supported by a diverse and enthusiastic population of young people who will keep planet Earth habitable for all.”
“I’m passionate about Empowers because the focus is on education and specifically around S.T.E.M. topics. Coming from a family of teachers and engineers, both are near and dear to my heart. Education liberates those less fortunate. S.T.E.M. areas are focused on the future and improving the future. As well, it’s very fulfilling and rewarding to a be a part of S.T.E.M. and all it has to offer.”
“My passion & commitment to supporting ESG Empowers comes from the simple fact that I Immigrated from a third world country to the United States and got the opportunity to obtain quality education that has changed my life forever. With Empowers’ mission to support educational causes in underserved communities, I am part of an organization that can change lives of children in underserved communities.”
“There’s a saying, “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.” I’ve referred to this saying often throughout my life, as I’ve always had great empathy toward others. Being on the board of ESG Empowers has allowed me to be a part of something larger than myself, through the empowerment of those who need it most – through job training and support – benefiting the individual and the future of the renewable energy industry.”
“In previous jobs I was always involved in helping underprivileged people through supporting food banks, charity initiatives et. Esdec Empowers gives me the chance to help out local communities and support people who need a helping hand!”
“I feel that it is important to give back to the community and the Empowers program is the perfect way for Esdec Solar Group to accomplish this. It is so important that we share our experience and knowledge of the solar industry so that others can benefit from renewable energy.”

We share our industry knowledge, support community building projects and partner with non-profit organizations to get solar arrays installed on their roofs.
Why we do it
We are passionate about a clean and green planet for all. In order to inspire that passion in others, we must invest in opportunities that will educate, train, and excite people of all backgrounds to pursue a career in a greener industry.

Projects we have supported over the years.
The Family Readiness Group (FGR) supports the troops and families of members of the NJ National Guard – roughly 300 soldiers in NJ. The group is part of the 102nd Cavalry. FGR’s primary mission is to support the families, especially as their soldiers get deployed and are away from home for months. Recent deployments found our service personnel in Somalia and Jordan and, before that, were in far-off locations as embedded in the Gulf War. Empowers made a $5,500 donation to “give back” to those who give so much to enjoy our freedoms in the US.
University Elementary at La Fiesta (UELF) is a unique and exciting educational environment that practices what is known as Project Based Learning (PBL). UELF students are guided through a standard curriculum; however, project-based learning encourages students to investigate real-world topics in personally meaningful ways, and that helps prepare students for a lifetime of active learning. Inquiry-based instruction involves applying learned curriculum to analyze problems and ultimately design and create solutions. Empowers supported UELF’s most significant yearly fundraising event.
