DEPCOM Donates Mobility Chair to Wounded Veteran Warrior

Charlotte, NC – April 29, 2018 –

While constructing the 102 megawatt solar plant in Concord, NC, members of DEPCOM’s EPC project team took some quality time over the weekend to meet with Veterans at the Independence Fund golf tournament in Charlotte, NC.

Founded in 2007, The Independence Fund is committed to empowering the nation’s severely wounded, injured, or ill Veterans to overcome physical, mental, and emotional wounds incurred in the line of duty. The organization remains dedicated to improving the lives of both Veterans and their families. Through the organization’s Mobility, Caregiver, Adaptive Sports, and Advocacy programs, The Independence Fund strives to bridge the gap of unmet needs for Veterans and their caregivers.

DEPCOM provided a $19,000 donation to help a deserving U.S. Veteran receive a life changing tracked wheelchair, providing extended mobility.

Retired Army Veteran Matt Louder, who lost his leg to an IED during combat, received the chair alongside his wife at the tournament.

“I am extremely grateful to companies like DEPCOM Power. This chair enables me to continue living life like I used to before I was injured. I can teach my kids how to hunt and fish again- this brings a new level of joy to our life,” said Mr. Louder.

The donation was in keeping with DEPCOM’s corporate giving values, where a portion of the company’s net income is donated to the solar plant project communities where DEPCOM builds and operates utility scale solar plant for its customers.
