Project Liter of Light
Participant Illac Diaz
The Liter of Light redesigns solar lighting for the developing world. The simple, two-step technology creates local jobs, teaches green skills, and empowers energy-poor communities. Rather than depending on imported, patented, and expensive technologies, the grassroots green lighting movement embodies the principle that anyone can become a solar engineer. Through producing easily repairable solar lights with locally available parts, Liter of Light increases communities’ self-sustainability, eliminating their reliance on expensive overseas production and logistics costs.
