Sagar Energy Solutions

Founded through 2016’s WorldMerit360 program, Sagar Energy Solutions’ Solar Powered Fishing Lamp aims to replace the currently used pressurized kerosene lanterns in the night fishing industry of East Africa.

Kerosene is expensive and dangerous, threatening fishermen’s economic security, their health, and further threatens entire lake ecosystems.

Sagar’s alternative eliminates all the fuel and maintenance costs associated with kerosene, increases fishermen’s disposable income, and protects entire marine and lake ecosystems.

Solar Powered Fishing Lamps are twice as bright as kerosene lanterns, they last longer - between 10 and 12 hours, increase yield, and are much cheaper, effective, and efficient.

Sagar Energy Solutions is convinced that their product will contribute to a much faster transition to modern and sustainable solutions in Africa. For more information, click here
