In 2011 DTE removed all street lights from Highland Park; Soulardarity is working to install solar-powered streetlights throughout the city. D2N is working with Soulardarity to place a solar-powered streetlight on Glendale (location of the S.A.Y. Detroit Family Health Clinic and Buckets of Rain Urban gardens and playground.) The streetlight will also serve as a WIFI hub for a few-block radius.

Soulardarity is a key partner in The Highland Park Crisis Coalition (HPC3.) Soulardarity will set up and monitor HPC3's joint infrastructure for intake of needs, create a webpage for sharing information about what HPC3 is doing and how individuals and organizations can support and connect with their efforts. Additionally, Soulardarity will launch an energy utility assistance fund.
