Kaniya Eenrgy's first product was designed to transform the community through education. It was born out of the desire to address SDGs 7 and 8.
Kaniya Kotonu was developed to provide alternative lighting solutions for children, giving them to have at least 2 additional hours of light at night for studies.
Kaniya Kotoku uses Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) cells as a medium to trap solar energy. During the day, the solar energy is trapped vis the OPV cells.
At night, a foldable, LED lamp is connected to the battery to provide light. This lamp can be used for a minimum of 2 hours if used for other purposes and a maximum of 6 hours if used solely as a study lamp. The lamp has varying levels of light intensity to suit the purpose for which it is being used.
