Patrick is the CEO of DigitalKap, a 100% Haitian owned solar company, that has been in operation for over 4 years. During this time, DigitalKap has provided high-quality solar system installations and maintenance on more than 500 solar systems for homeowners, businesses, schools, non-profits and government organizations. As a proven solar provider, DigitalKap has been a leader in best practices for new solar installations, updating of existing solar systems, solar street lighting, solar water pumping, cleaning, maintenance, operations checks and renewable energy and system use trainings in Haiti.
Mr. Eugene began his career as a computer programmer working in the US where he’d done his studies, but always planning to return to his native Haiti when the business opportunity was right. That moment came in 2013 when he founded DigitalKap.
In 2014, DigitalKap formed a partnership with US-based NRG Energy, to design and install complete solar systems on their behalf – generating significant savings on electricity for their clients, allowing their clients to finally take the green route and abandon dirty and expensive fossil fuels.
Along with his computer qualifications, Mr. Eugene has also completed a master’s degree in renewable energy. The more he considered it, it was the possibilities solar offered in Haiti that really caught his imagination. Haiti and solar power were made for each other.
As an entrepreneur in this domain, Patrick is eager to contribute to the solar energy revolution in Haiti and in the Caribbean.
