Light up Hope Street Crowdfunding Campaign is now live!


We’re making Hope Street, Providence a more beautiful and pedestrian-friendly destination after dark – and we need your help! Please see here for details on our brand new crowdfunding campaign and how to donate.

Off-Grid On Hope is an effort by the Hope Street Merchants Association to install 100% solar-powered street lamps in one of Providence’s most vibrant neighborhoods. These lamps are locally designed and manufactured, and completely off the grid. Their warm, subtle glow will make the streetscape more beautiful and safer at night.

Through a generous grant from The Miriam Hospital we recently installed the prototype lamp in front of Kreatelier (804 Hope St.) and now we’re raising funds for Phase One of the project, which will install 10 more lamps!
