In 2008 an initial pilot of the Energee-Saw kit build concept was flown out to Uganda for user testing. The installation proved a
success and subsequent development was embarked upon.
The Energee-Saw is designed to be supplied in kit form with local materials then used to build the main structure of the see-saw. This greatly reduces logistical costs and the carbon footprint of transportation. It also engages
the local community into the build of the product - fostering a pride of ownership and providing work.
The product is intended to power low-drain electrical appliances at schools such as LED based lighting, mp3 devices, mobile phones and radios. These are small items that can make a significant difference to study, teaching and management in underpriviliged schools.
