We are a socially responsible and mission focused company
We believe that providing power to many of the poorest places in the world can open doors. We partner with local ministries around the world to bring power into homes as a tool to alleviate poverty and bring illumination.
1.3 BILLION PEOPLE IN THE WORLD LIVE WITHOUT POWER
A fifth of the world’s population lacks access to grid electricity. Many of these people are forced to rely upon dangerous, toxic, and expensive kerosene lanterns as their primary source of light. We believe solar power provides the solution.
“There is no light to fill my hut tonight. Dark like every other night. Except for dim light from kerosene wick burning at my side. ”
Somewhere in Africa a hut is burning tonight. When one hut burns, a whole village burns. The opportunity to alleviate this begins now.
Kerosene fills lungs with particles of carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, formaldehyde causing acute lower respiratory infection such as bronchitis, asthma and tuberculosis.
Luminance provides an effective and affordable alternative to kerosene combustion. Replacing fuel-based lighting with off-grid electric systems to alleviate poverty.
Resulting customer savings allow more money to stay in the communities we serve and the creation of local distribution and retail jobs.
Kids can now read with luminous light. When night falls they continue their studies and prepare for school and for the future.
WE POWER THE WORLD THAT NO ONE ELSE WANTS TO
We provide power. We are driven to serve communities that have never had a safe, low cost lighting alternative to the burning of kerosene. We provide both lighting and mobile device charging in the home.
