TERREPOWER Donates Solar Panels to Brighten Haiti

TERREPOWER’s 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.

TERREPOWER, solar panel and EV battery lifecycle management division of BBB Industries (BBB), announced its partnership with Brighten Haiti, a non-profit organization dedicated to using solar energy to expand education, develop a sustainable economy, and end poverty in Haiti.

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,” according to TERREPOWER.

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

The first shipment of 508 sustainably manufactured solar modules will arrive by the end of May to be used in projects aimed at powering schools and training local workers on solar installation techniques. TERREPOWER’s total commitment to donating more than 4900 solar panels will help ensure that Brighten Haiti can achieve its goal of modernizing Haiti’s education system, the company said.

Fewer than 35% of Haitian schools have access to electricity. This initiative can make a significant impact on education and community development—impacting more than 150,000 students.

“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.

“Our discussions with Brighten Haiti over the past year have led to an exciting collaboration, and we are proud to contribute sustainably manufactured solar panels that will empower those who need it the most. This partnership exemplifies our commitment to driving positive change and sustainability in communities around the world,” said Peter Hutchings, business development manager, TERREPOWER.
