Two NCIIA E-Teams, Greenlight Planet and Socialite, were recently featured in a story in The Economist focused on solar lighting for the poor. Greenlight Planet is selling its solar-charged, battery-powered LED lantern, the Sun King, in China, India and Africa. Cooper Union has been working with rural communities in northern Ghana on a solar lantern project since 2006.
