Solar energy’s Canadian bright lights: 3 entrepreneurs helping the developing world

Ontarian Adam Camenzuli co-founded KARIBU Solar Power with a similar goal: to bring affordable modular solar lamps to off-the-grid African villagers.

Camenzuli and four others created a modular lamp made up of a solar panel, rechargeable battery and mobile phone charger, and light. They made it as an alternative to dangerous kerosene lamps that can cause burning, child poisoning, poor visual health and indoor air pollution.
