Social Enterprises Bringing Light to the Developing World with Low Cost Solar

d.light’s mission is to provide reliable, quality lighting for people without electricity to improve their quality of life and better protect their health. Their goal is to have improved light quality for 50 million people by 2015, and 100 million people by the end of 2020. They will do this by distributing their d.light products to people in a variety of areas, most importantly in India and Africa. Their d.lights are solar-powered lights that use LED technology to provide high quality, light in a durable package – up to 100 hours of light on a single day’s solar charge (8 am to 6 pm). They have several light designs suitable for a variety of applications. Many of these systems are water, dust and insect resistant making them highly dependable and almost indestructible. Some of their products also come with an integrated mobile charger to give them even more functionality.
