Did you know that 1.5 billion people in the developing world live without electricity? This has so many far-reaching implications.
It means that once the sun goes down businesses can’t operate, clinics can’t stay open, and women and children have to walk home in the dark. Those who do have the luxury of light often use kerosene which is dangerous to use, expensive to maintain, and toxic to individuals and the environment.
To help alleviate this global crisis, Direct Energy has partnered with MPOWERED to aid in bringing the solar Luci light to the developing world.
The Luci light was created as a safe, efficient solution to aid those in developing countries who are struggling with a lack of light. The Luci light is solar-powered and can shine up to 12 hours and a single charge which means that on one would have to go overnight without light.
What is particularly nice about these Luci lights is that they are waterproof, durable, lightweight, and even inflatable. This means that they can go anywhere and still provide a source of light. Most importantly, these lights are safe and clean.
What are some ways you can use your Luci lights?
