DloHaiti to use solar energy to power kiosks in Haiti

DloHaiti, a start-up based in Port-au-Prince has managed to accumulate a fund of $3.37 million from its round of Series A Funding. dloHaiti hopes that it will be able to use this money to quickly roll out its facilities of decentralized water production throughout the Republic of Haiti.


Jim Chu, CEO of dloHaiti told Global Water Intelligence (or GWI) after IFC InfraVentures initial seed investment that apart from himself, investments were made by Miyamoto International, Leopard Capital, FMO and IFC InfraVentures and that dloHaiti has a plan of going for scale-up financing of Series B sometime later.

The decentralized facilities of dloHaiti make use of the RO and UF technologies for produce, for rural Haitian communities, safe drinking water. A basic decentralized facility of dloHaiti has a capacity of producing 2,500 gallons of safe drinking water every day. dloHaiti's CEO Jim Chu explained that the kiosks are powered by solar energy. There is no doubt that harnessing the solar power for powering the kiosks is a green initiative too that can help to check the carbon footprints on the environment and can, to great extent, also reduce the operating expenses over the long run.

In the long run, the dloHaiti aims to roll out a total of 300 kiosks all over the Republic of Haiti. These kiosks will be set up in rural communities, which will serve over 1 million Haitians. dloHaiti aims towards penetrating those areas where piped water supplies cover only one-third of the total population and the rest are forced to drink unsafe water.
