People around the world with no access to electricity? 25%
Largest driver for social and economic development? Electric LightingSolar Lanterns are a simple product that makes a significant impact on the daily life of people in developing countries. Consisting of a solar cell, LEDs and a battery, these lanterns can be left to charge during the day and then provide households with light at night to read, work, cook or many of the things we take for granted!
Organisations around the globe such as Barefoot Power and Rotary support the development of the Solar Lantern market, as well as manufacturing and distributing lanterns by those affected by natural disasters.
