Lamps for Rent Project

The first project of is the Lamps4Rent Project in Pangan-an Island, Cebu. This project provides rechargeable LED lamps to the community in an off-grid rural island in the Philippines. Currently, the community uses electricity from a solar power plant which has decreasing efficiency. The electricity supply is no longer enough to provide light at night, hence a secondary storage of power, such as rechargeable lamps, can provide the needed power storage and provision, come nightfall. The project is done in cooperation with ABE Project Group, a research group based in Tokyo Institute of Technology, International Engineering Department (IDE), the Pangan-an Island Cooperative for Community Development (PICCD) and founder, William Hong. The project is in its start-up stage as of May 2011.
