Patrick Dempsey Talks Solar Power

Trina Solar Limited has teamed up with McDreamy himself, Patrick Dempsey, in an eight minute video that discusses solar power and its usefulness in communities.

The video, entitled ‘Plug me in, Light me up’ reminds us that, every 15 minutes, enough sunlight hits the Earth to fulfill our energy needs for a year.

“Using sustainable energy to improve people’s everyday lives is at the heart of our mission, and we are proud to work with Patrick Dempsey to draw attention to the difference that solar energy can make in this world,” Trina Solar said on its website.

Trina Solar Limited is “a leading integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic products” and in its video it “introduces viewers to Trina Solar’s philanthropic efforts in bringing energy independence to a Mexican home for orphaned children, an African hospital, and an American camp for children with special medical needs.”

It’s actually really great to see such a well done video with an actual message being espoused by a celebrity. The video’s message is based in facts, rather than just hopeful activism.
