ABOUT

KARIBU Solar Power was a social enterprise that made energy available at the price of kerosene. We designed, manufactured and distributed solar "hockey puck” kits for East Africa. These solar kits are income-producing assets for entrepreneurs and also an affordable way to buy light (and mobile phone charging) for end-consumers.

 

The solar kit consists of two “hockey puck” rechargeable lights/phone chargers and one solar panel as well as instructional information and marketing materials. We call it the “hockey puck” because it looks like a hockey puck (we have Canadian roots) and contains a rechargeable battery, LED and USB phone charger.
