Sold solar-powered lighting and energy systems to over 7 million families who formerly had no access to electricity.

Over 1.2 billion people don't have access to electricity in their homes, while nearly 2 billion people lack regular access to electricity. Greenlight Planet designs, manufactures, distributes, and finances solar-powered home energy systems and appliances for those living without access to a consistently reliable and affordable electrical grid. Their vision is that smart design, efficient engineering, and innovative distribution strategies can make dirty, polluting kerosene lanterns a thing of the past. To date, Greenlight Planet has sold over seven million solar-powered lanterns and home energy systems, impacting over 20 million people in over 62 countries. In the process, over 1.3 million metric tons of CO2 have been offset.
