1.6 billion people worldwide live without electricity, in areas known as off-grid areas. Artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen developed Little Sun, a high-quality solar-powered LED lamp, to get clean, reliable, affordable light to as many people in the world as possible. Little Sun is at once a work of art, a global project, a social business, and a way to connect the world through sharing light.
The Little Sun lamp provides a fun, accessible introduction to the benefits of solar power and sustainable energy. Featuring two light levels, its easy to use: 5 hours of charging in the sun produces 10 hours of soft light or 4 hours of bright light.
Not only for off-grid areas, Little Sun is popular across the globe even in areas with electricity. Little Sun is perfect for camping, at the beach, festivals, BBQs, or hiking and it makes a great gift. Kids love it. Light your garden or balcony, or use it indoors to brighten your home.
Little Suns are sold at a higher price in areas of the world with electricity so that the lamps can be sold off-grid at much lower, locally affordable prices. When you buy a Little Sun, you are making sure that Little Sun solar light gets to people who need it the most.
Kerosene lanterns are commonly used in off-grid areas for light, but they are toxic and carry the risk of burns and house fires. Little Sun solar light is a clean, safe alternative. And over a two-year period, Little Sun saves off-grid users 90% of what they would spend on kerosene lighting.
Currently Little Sun is available in eight African countries: Zimbabwe, Uganda, Kenya, Burundi, Senegal, Ethiopia, Nigeria, and South Africa, as well as in Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, and Japan.
