UbiLuz provides high-quality, environmentally-friendly solar-based LED home lighting and other renewable energy solutions, which are practical, affordable and durable to the 7.3 million people in Central America who lack access to grid electricity. Unlike expensive, non-renewable, and polluting kerosene, diesel generators, and disposable battery flashlights, UbiLuz reduces the cost of energy for families and improves their quality of life, which in turn reduces poverty and offsets CO2. By using a family and community-based enterprise model to distribute and support our products, UbiLuz engages and equips local family members with real savings and business skills.
