SPARTA, Tenn., May 15, 2024 -- TERREPOWER, the innovative solar panel and EV battery lifecycle management division of BBB Industries (BBB), is proud to announce 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.

"In Northern Haiti, a staggering 90% of the population lives in darkness, lacking access to electricity," said Kevin Keene, Founder & President of Brighten Haiti. "This generous donation is a beacon of hope."

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 4900 solar panels will help ensure that Brighten Haiti can achieve its goal of modernizing Haiti's education system.

"Imagine the profound change that just a single solar panel can bring to a family, lighting their home at night and charging their cell phones," said Keene. "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, offering students a

21st century education for the first time. This is not just a donation, it's a monumental leap towards a brighter, more sustainable future for Haiti."

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.
