illumination – the designer of the world’s most affordable solar light, the Mandarin Ultra – is pleased to announce the signing of an agreement to distribute in the Republic of Ghana where over 13 million Ghanaians have no access to electricity and rely on kerosene to light their homes.
The agreement grants exclusive rights to Greener Impact International to market the Australian-engineered solar light. Greener Impact International is a non-governmental, non-profit making organization whose main focus is eliminating extreme poverty and hunger and ensuring environmental sustainability.
Over the next three years, the partners aim to distribute over 500,000 lights throughout rural Ghana. Ghana is a priority market for illumination due to the stability of the Government and their commitment to improve the situation of the rural poor. Costing less than 6 week’s worth of kerosene, the Mandarin Ultra brings solar energy to those earning less than a dollar a day. The light provides 6 hours of safe, clean light that is 4 times brighter than a kerosene lamp. illumination is able to maintain the affordable price as they create carbon credits from each light sold.
illumination is delighted to be working with Greener Impact International. We look forward to the commencement of our work together and the arrival of the first shipment of Mandarin Ultra solar lights in Ghana.
