Haiti – Technology : A generous donation of solar panels for education
16/05/2024 09:40:39


The Spanish company TerrePower, the solar panel life cycle management division of BBB Industries, announces its partnership with Brighten Haiti, an American NGO dedicated to the use of solar energy to develop education. TerrePower is generously donating solar panels to help provide solar energy to education.

Brighten Haiti’s Solar4Schools initiative aims to bring solar energy to more than 300 schools across rural Haiti. This groundbreaking effort represents the largest deployment of solar for schools in Haiti’s history, addressing the critical need for electricity infrastructure in underserved rural communities.

The involvement of TERREPOWER, and its Ontility brand, in this initiative marks a significant step in advancing Brighten Haiti’s mission, as the teams are sending the first shipment of 508 sustainably manufactured solar modules by the end of the month to be used in projects aimed at powering schools and training local workers on solar installation techniques. Their total commitment to donating more than 4,900 solar panels will help ensure that Brighten Haiti can achieve its goal of modernizing Haiti’s education system.

“Consider the transformation for schools without power, where just 22 panels can illuminate and cool classrooms. This also enables access to computer labs and technology for the first time. This is not just a donation, it’s a monumental leap towards a brighter, more sustainable future for Haiti,” said Kevin Keene, founder and President of Brighten Haiti.

“I’m thrilled we have partnered with Brighten Haiti to provide them with sustainable solar panels and to provide them with access to clean energy for their communities,” said Maria Caballero, President, TerrePower.
