We have developed a solar alternative to the currently used pressurised kerosene lanterns
We are developing community storage units for the fishing communities in which we operate.
We are currently developing a convertible electric flour mill for communities in Tanzania and India.
We believe in utilising renewable energy solutions to improve daily activities and actually increase incomes - not just make access to energy cheaper.
What we do
Our core focus is modernising the incredibly productive fishing industry of Lake Victoria. Together with our end users, we design and develop solar alternatives to improve their livelihoods and their communities. As a socially driven company, people profit planet is our bottom line.
Our reason for action
Our first product is a solar alternative used to attract sardines at night, replacing the unreliable, costly and dangerous pressurised kerosene lanterns currently used.
"The price of Kerosene has always been going up and for someone in a small-scale fishing business like myself it's not lucrative. With Sagar lamps I get to save 76% of costs and invest it elsewhere."
"Our goal as an educational technology venture has always been to ensure secondary school students learn easier whether or not they have electricity. With Sagar lamps, our students have seen increase in their pass rate up to 80% per class."
Sagar Energy Solutions was developed through Merit360, the World’s leading youth platform dedicated to tackle the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, organised by World Merit in collaboration with the United Nations. With our combined skillet, knowledge and partners, we directly aim to build on plans and strategies designed to achieve the SDGs.
