Three billion people worldwide lack access to safe, affordable ways to cook their meals and light their homes. They cook over polluting open fires or inefficient stoves, and use harmful kerosene lamps for lighting their homes, both of which lead to devastating climate consequences. Women and girls, who spend the most time collecting fuel and working in the kitchen using inefficient lighting, are disproportionately affected by these issues.
Our unique technology and distribution model transform the way off-grid families cook, charge devices and light their homes, while eliminating the environmental, health and social costs of open-fire cooking and kerosene lighting. The SolarHome 620 is an affordable solar home system that brings modern lighting, phone charging and entertainment to the off-grid home. The SolarHome 620 is expandable and can be built into a larger modular system.
