Across the globe, more than 1.5 billion people live in energy poverty, a dangerous and oppressive condition that a group of innovators hopes to wipe out with a simple lantern.
MPOWERD Inc. — a company that develops and manufactures transformative clean energy products — hopes to brighten up the developing world with its debut product, Luci. This solar-powered light could level the playing field in impoverished countries by giving people affordable and safe access to light.
Luci distinguishes itself from other solar power products in that it combines the functions of a task light, flash light and diffused lantern.
What’s perhaps most critical is that the lantern poses no safety hazards.
Oftentimes, poor homes resort to using kerosene lamps, which can cause serious injuries.
