The BRIGHT story

Timeline Gif For Web

Four years after the launch of SunBell more than 2,5 million BRIGHT lamps are solving everyday problems for more than 13 million people. In homes and communities, in cities and camps, in the middle of nature:

Children use BRIGHT solar lamps to do homework at night. Women illuminate their paths for safety. Families power their homes. Travelers light up the dark. Entrepreneurs run their businesses and charge their phones.

From the design studio and the board room to our production facilities and distribution network:
Sustainability is key in BRIGHT’s value chain. We believe that by spreading knowledge about the benefits of clean solar energy and by innovating products, distribution and financing of efficient small-scale solar products, we can solve the lighting and charging needs of millions of individuals, families, entrepreneurs and businesses.
