D.light Rural Lighting Project



The D.light Rural Lighting Project (hereafter referred to as the Project) involves the introduction of solar lighting systems to rural Indian households. The solar lighting systems consist of one LED (Light Emitting Diode) lamp with a rechargeable battery and one photovoltaic module. LED lamps use a lightemitting diode which is a semiconductor diode that emits light when an electrical current is applied. LEDs are ideal for rural lighting purposes due to their efficiency, long life time, ruggedness and low maintenance costs associated.1 Photovoltaic (PV) modules consist of solar cells which can convert sunlight directly into electricity. PV modules are very useful to power electric devices like the lamps for this Project in remote, off-grid areas.
