Solar Lighting in the Amazon August 28 2014
As mentioned in a previous post, we have provided solar lighting for research stations in the Amazon. It's pretty cool to be helping the Amazon Conservation Association in their mission; they are doing fantastic work.
Robinson Palomino (the station manager) is quite happy with the LightPortal. The feedback we got was "The power of the light [it emits] is strong and lasts well", and it lets them "avoid the use of the generator, which is more contaminating".
As well as contributing to the social good, the lights we have sent to extreme environments (research station in the Amazon, clinic in the the Himalayas) really help put our rugged designs to the test. If they will work there, they will work anywhere the sun shines!
