Since we last wrote, we have been busy expanding the Enèji Pwòp retailer network, building better business tools, and expanding our first microgrid!

The network now has 102 retailers across the country, and we partnered with amazing marketing specialists 17 Triggers to develop comprehensive training and marketing materials that our team will be using in the coming months to train new entrepreneurs and better support our current network.

Sales to date have grossed over $125,392 since 2010, growing exponentially from $6,943 in 2010 to $65,442 to date in 2013. Enèji Pwòp retailers have sold over 7,158 products, benefiting nearly 35,000 Haitian people.  3,141 products have been sold in 2013 as of September 1st, illustrating Enèji Pwòp’s dramatic sustained growth.  Enèji Pwòp solar lighting products directly replace kerosene, candles and charcoal, resulting in household savings of over $5 per month.

Alongside our retail work, we have expanded our first microgrid from 14 to 56 customers, and we will be able to report some additional exciting news on that front soon. (hint: solar energy!)

Thank you for making all of this work possible. We couldn't do it without your support.
