Barefoot Power was one of the pioneers to develop the pico-solar market with small solar lanterns, followed by phone charging . Today the assortment includes advanced solar home systems that power a television, radio or fan.

Today many families in developing countries light their homes with kerosene lanterns which is expensive and dangerous. The cloudy, open flame and smoke seriously impact indoor air quality and cause countless fires. In fact, more children die from fire-related injuries than from tuberculosis or malaria in Africa. With its solar lighting systems Barefoot Power offers a more affordable and healthier alternative.
