About BRIGHT

BRIGHT is a Norwegian solar product company catering to anyone who needs to be less dependent on the electrical grid, whether by choice or by living in off-grid or bad-grid communities. Our expanding range of multifunctional solar lamps and home systems with charging capabilities are built to endure harsh conditions. Our products are durable, functional and beautiful – firmly rooted in Norwegian design. Advanced solar technology and rigorous field testing of electronic components and materials create the foundation of lasting, multifunctional, rugged and portable (as well as charming) solar products with high product endurance, low total cost of ownership and minimum waste.

Four years after the launch of SunBell more than 2,5 million BRIGHT lamps are solving everyday problems for more than 10 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.

BRIGHT was the first company to fully commit to the Future-Fit Business Benchmark, a science-based definition of what it means to be an environmentally sustainable business for the future. Read our Future-Fit pledge, here. (pdf)
