Panasonic India launches solar LED lights

 As a continuation to the “100 Thousand Solar Lanterns Project” — an initiative to donate 100,000 solar LED lanterns, Panasonic India has introduced its range of solar LED lights to help resolve lighting issues in non-electrified regions.The solar LED light, fully rechargeable in 5 hours and emitting light Uni-directionally (120 degrees), is convenient and practical as a light source as well as a power source in areas without electricity.
A large population in India who are living in non-electrified regions is still using kerosene lamps for lighting. However, kerosene lamps not only fail to provide sufficient light but also emit toxic fumes and pose a fire risk. Addressing to this need, Panasonic’s solar LED light with a 1.25-watt output solar panel and a mobile charging port offers a clean, safe alternative as a light source, as well as a power source for people living in such areas. The portable light can be used in homes and various other locations, including hospitals, schools, shops and outdoors. The light can be fully charged in 5 hours to provide up to 6 hours of light at the maximum brightness setting.
Speaking on the launch, Manish Sharma, Managing Director, Panasonic India, said, “India being a tropical country is endowed with abundant solar energy and has a very high potential for maximising eco-friendly energy which is fast becoming popular in rural and remote areas. We, at Panasonic, believe that these LED solar lights will play a huge role in minimising the dependence of rural households on fire wood and dung cakes, which in turn will contribute to environmental conservation.”
Kenichi Kudara, Associate Director, India Business Development Centre, Panasonic India, added, “At Panasonic, we continue to strive for a better tomorrow by contributing to the society through our corporate citizenship activities and always making ‘people’ central to our activities, and thereby focusing on people’s lives. We will continue to provide better living for our customers. It is in-line with this philosophy that Panasonic’s new range of solar LED lights will meet the needs of the people living in areas without electricity and the scope of power generation using solar energy is certainly very bright.”
