The Rural Light 6 is an advanced lighting kit designed for rural electrification projects in the developing world. And for off-grid cabins here in Canada too! 6 Watts of solar powers a very bright battery-driven LED light for up to 24 hours per day. When the sun goes down, this package provides the light that supports family life, literacy, & education, while improving safety & indoor air quality.
For too long, people in remote villages have relied on antiquated kerosene lamps, or large, clunky 12V solar power systems to provide the after-dark illumination they need. Now, using state-of-the-art solar & battery equipment, the same functionality can be provided for much less.
- Smaller equipment means lower deployment costs
- Simplified plug-n-play USB parts means fast set-up
- Simple to use & simple to educate
- USB-based means lower costs than 12V solar systems
- USB-based means it is a reduced target for theft as compared to 12V equipment
The LED lamp provides multiple lighting levels between 50 & 175 lumens of light for as long as 24 hours each day.
Compare this against any other small solar lighting product!
