We create enough electricity to improve a Haitian household by increasing from 75 kilowatts hours per year to 12,000 kilowatt hours per year without a residual cost. That's real economic development. The largely government owned electricity sector in Haiti is facing a deep, permanent crisis characterized by dramatic shortages and the lowest coverage of electricity in the Western Hemisphere with only about 12.5% of the population (25% if illegal connections are accounted for)having regular access to electricity.

In addition, Haiti's large share of thermal generation (70%) makes the country especially vulnerable to rising and unstable oil prices.Haiti has the smallest public sector in the LAC region, which in this case is reflected by a weak institutional capacity within the Ministry of Public Works, Transport and Communications (MTPTC).Since the MTPTC is the main government body in charge of the electricity sector, this lack of capacity affects directly the performance of the sector.Lakay Mouin Foundation gives the people in Haiti who are not equipped with 24 hours access to electricity - 90% of the country's population hope. Hope in the form of solar panel systems manufactured and installed by local Haitian tradespeople.We are employing Haitian locals to assemble the same solar panels that will be installed on their homes charging at cost deferred plans that extend 7 years making it possible for any household to afford a system of solar panels that will power their light bulbs and charge their batteries with enough additional power to expand their lives as they become more healthy and educated as a result of our help.If you are a Haitian household or your family is a household in Haiti that needs access to electricity because you currently have access to a faulty and deteriorated electrical utility we encourage you to submit the form below. We will get in touch with you and coordinate an installation of solar panels for your household.
