Integration of LED and solar energy to open up new markets
Portable LED charging lights benefit the masses India's big women's group All India Women's Federation (
Based on the community, a community solar charging station is set up to charge portable LED lights during the day. People rent lights on the way home from work to provide lighting at home for several days at night.
Since the cost of building solar panels is still a threshold, there is an opportunity to build shared charging stations through joint cooperatives or community fund-raising;
Letting people rent lanterns is tantamount to retailing electricity to those in need so that more people can obtain it.
Community women are trained as equipment maintenance technicians to earn salaries through this program.

In addition, many independent cooperatives are also promoting similar things.
The reason why solar lamps are widely promoted in India is that TERI, a well-known environmental think tank in India, has long promoted the plan to illuminate millions of people and successfully attracted foreign donations from the British government.
Of course, the sharp drop in the price of solar panels and the emergence of LED lamps are the main reasons for everyone to enjoy light.
On the other hand, some manufacturers have invented small solar modules with LED lamps, which are specially sold in areas lacking lighting such as Africa.
The above picture is a SunKingPro generation product. Although the photoelectric board is small, it can supply 20 hours of lighting after being fully charged. The second generation product can already reach 36 hours of lighting.
Incidentally, this set of equipment can also be charged by mobile phones. In recent years, the penetration rate of mobile phones in Africa is rapidly increasing. People can communicate with the world by using mobile phones and consume much less electricity than computers.
Thailand's SunSawang social enterprises have found a special business model.
Thailand government as early as 2004 will help more than 200 thousand user does not have power of suburban family installation solar system however but no maintenance plan that up to nine of equipment can't again ', residents were forced to go back to use candles and oil lamps.
In the early days of SunSawang's business, it was mainly to repair this batch of solar energy equipment abandoned by the government. They tried to train solar power technicians in the community, and then gradually developed different service projects, for example, one-year maintenance of existing equipment, rental of solar LED lights, or installation of new home solar equipment to support small basic household appliances.

The plan may have been seen on the internet. It is to add bleach to the empty treasure bottle, install it on the iron roof, and introduce the light of the day into the dark room, so it is also called the Sun treasure bottle (SolarBottle)
For building intensive of slums community bring very big of useful and help the number of 100,000 households family.
From 2013, the planning team began to promote the solar treasure bottle combined with solar panels, with LED lights installed on the roof, introducing natural light during the day and providing hours of artificial lighting at night.
The light emitted by solar LED lamps may seem weak in our eyes, but it encourages communities to develop independent energy sources and create green jobs and business opportunities in the land, it also allows millions and tens of millions of people to read at night, or weave and hand-made, and then supplement their homes, and then step by step closer to the good life they want.
