Our Purpose

BrightLight is on a mission to raise standards of living in the world’s poorest communities. With efficient LED lighting systems and small solar panels, we’re bringing safe, healthy, cost-effective, renewable and reliable power to isolated areas. For people who live off the grid, and who must walk miles to charge their cell phone, that’s their community’s connection to the outside word, a little power makes a world of difference.

SOLAR POWER DOES MORE THAN KEEP THE LIGHTS ON:
ENVIRONMENT
Replaces burning kerosene and wood with clean
solar power

EDUCATION
Allows students of all ages to continue studying after the sun has set

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Allows people to continue their work after the sun goes down

HEALTH
Clean solar power replaces the smoke breathed from kerosene and wood fires

SAFETY
Fewer burns and injuries from kerosene and
wood fires

THE WORK WE’RE DOING
With pilot projects in Rwanda and Argentina, Global BrightLight demonstrated the technical capabilities, financial logic and adaptable operational approaches of our model. We’ve used
the feedback from these pilots to improve our power system designs and business
implementation models.
