Nuru Energy aims to provide affordable, clean, safe and functional lighting solutions to rural households in India and East Africa that are unconnected to the electricity grid (off-grid). Currently, over 90% of these households use kerosene, which is prohibitively expensive and detrimental to both the environment and respiratory health.

Nuru Energy fournit des solutions d'éclairage abordables, propres, sûres et fonctionnelles pour les foyers d'Inde et d'Afrique de l'Est vivant en milieu rural et n'étant pas connectés au réseau électrique. Plus de 90% de ces foyers s'éclairent au kérosène, combustible extrêmement cher et dangereux, à la fois pour l'environnement et pour le système respiratoire.

Nuru Energia visa a proporcionar soluções de iluminação limpas, seguras, funcionais e com preços acessíveis para as famílias rurais na Índia e na África Oriental que não têm acesso à rede elétrica (fora da rede). Atualmente, mais de 90% destas famílias usa querosene, que é proibitivamente caro e prejudicial para o ambiente e saúde respiratória.

Nuru Energy seeks to replace expensive and polluting kerosene lamps in Africa by introducing the Nuru Lighting system, the world’s most affordable and efficient off-grid option. Our light is charged by a pedal generator, which provides over 500minutes of light in just 20minutes of gentle pedaling. Our light retails for less than $7, making it 1/2 the cost of the cheapest solar lantern in Africa.
