Promoting clean energy, fostering education, fighting poverty.
Brighter Today hopes to use eco-friendly bulbs and solar technology as a tool to alleviate poverty in developing nations.
The 60-Watt Incandescent Bulb:
- Costs $0.20 to purchase
- Lasts 2 months
- Energy inefficient
The 11-Watt CFL Bulb:
- Costs $2 to purchase
- Lasts 3 to 4 years
- Up to 80% more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs
- Reduces electric bill payments by 80%
Savings from the conversion of incandescent to CFL bulbs can go towards food, education and healthcare, improving quality of life and combating poverty.
The Kerosene Lamp:
- Cost $0.50/litre to purchase
- Burning an average of four hours/day emits over 100kg of CO2/year
The Solar LED Bulb:
- Cost $20 to make
- Replace LED bulb after 12 years
- No running cost
Replacing kerosene lamps with the solar LED bulbs will reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions emitted, and create a more environmentally and economically friendly environment, ultimately increasing productivity and improving standard of living.
LIGHT FOR LIFE SOLUTION
To reach out to households who cannot afford access to electricity, we have developed a device that will bring free, clean, sustainable power to light up homes for a lifetime. Powered by daylight, the device can provide 24/7 lighting, fan as well as a station for recharging mobile phones.
The device requires no maintenance, is easy to install and has zero running costs. The team has successfully developed the product within an affordable total price tag of $80 per unit. Thanks to Glamour Magazine, L'Oreal, Philips and The Resolution Project for working with us to make this project a reality.
