Colonet, Mexico Deployment
The 18 solar panels installed thus far will provide 90,000 lumen hours per home of LED lighting for Colonet youth living off-grid. The cumulative lumen hour youth benefit is 4.2 million hours over 5 years!
Each year, LFL has improved the solar units including increasing wattage output and adding a USB cell phone charger.
Years ago I was at the home of a family we knew in Colonet. While there I realized their teenage daughters were studying by candlelight. I said to myself, 'I need to do something about this.' When I found the LED strips we use, I knew we had the answer.
