Thank you for joining the Solar Justice movement!

Luci lights make a difference. So can you! Every Luci light gives a child more hours to study in the evening. An entrepreneur gains 90 more productive hours a month to increase his or her income. Women feel safer at night. And families no longer have to inhale toxic fumes from indoor kerosene lamps.

With your support, MPOWERD aims to send 2,500 Luci solar lanterns to communities in need around the globe, but we only have until May 31, 2014, to reach our goal, so please consider the impact you can make by giving Luci light to those in need! Together we can positively impact 12,500 people living in Energy Poverty and eliminate 800,000 kg CO2 from our shared air.

Our Solar 100 Ambassadors are leading the charge to reach our goal as global leaders in the arts, entertainment, business, science, and social change. Follow the progress of our Solar Justice movement on our social media channels.

Together we can and we will change lives!

One little light is sparking a solar revolution.

Humanity thrives on light. Yet, so many of our brothers and sisters live in darkness. Depressed yet? Don’t be: for the first time in history, solar technology has the potential to illuminate the world over – on and off the grid –  with affordable, clean light. Together, we can eradicate energy poverty through solar justice.

MPOWERD creates affordable solar lamps that function in any environment on earth to produce brilliant light with zero emissions. The same light that empowers a poor child to study at night can empower you to think differently about energy. So, please join our Solar Justice movement. Light up your life – and that of another – by purchasing and giving today.

Luci is an elegant, inflatable and waterproof solar lamp – ideal for those living, working and playing off-grid in both the developed and developing world. Luci replaces dirty and expensive fuel-based lighting sources and provides up to 12 hours of light when fully charged, making her the perfect partner for outdoor activities, home décor and emergency preparedness. Luci functions as both a task lamp and a lantern and has three light levels for maximum versatility.
