New lighting systems: small homes & classrooms

VillageTech Solutions (VTS) transferred responsibility for manufacturing and marketing its power and lighting products to a new Nepalese company, VillageSolutions (VS) in January, 2009. VillageSolutions was created by the former EcoSystems employees.

A skilled Nepalese electrical engineer and Dr. John Mahan of VTS have coached VS in expanding the range of their product line of SunLights. They now offer five choices. Several photos of the systems are shown below.

VS' manager, Nanda Lal Bhandari visited manufacturers in Delhi recently to arrange for more durable, lightweight and less expensive housings for the battery and electronics. These will enable VS to provide the lighting systems at lower cost.
