Company Summary

We design and distribute solar rental kits for the BoP user. We will pilot our first product in March and ship first stocks in May. 1.6 billion people have no access to on grid power and most live on $1.25 per day. These people can't afford to pay the high up front cost ($50-$100) of a solar lighting kit. Light and power is a necessity to improving quality of life. Our kits offer that opportunity by providing power for a small weekly rental.
