TERREPOWER to provide 4,900+ solar panels to Brighten Haiti

Fewer than 35% of Haitian schools have access to electricity. This initiative can impact more than 150,000 students, the company said.

TERREPOWER, the solar panel and EV battery lifecycle management division of BBB Industries (BBB), is partnering with Brighten Haiti, a non-profit organization dedicated to using solar energy to expand education, develop a sustainable economy and help end poverty in Haiti. Brighten Haiti said its Solar4Schools initiative aims to bring solar energy to more than 300 schools across rural Haiti.

“In Northern Haiti, a staggering 90% of the population lives in darkness, lacking access to electricity,” Kevin Keene, founder and president of Brighten Haiti, said. “This generous donation is a beacon of hope.”

With the involvement of TERREPOWER, and its Ontility brand, the company said it is 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. Its total commitment will be donating more than 4,900 solar panels to 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,” Maria Caballero, president of TERREPOWER, said.
