Prototype Mobile Mini Grid Electronics

Very excited to announce prototype of SociaLite Lighting Systems mobile mini grid incorporating lantern and phone charging facilities, 12V and USB 5V outlets for soldering irons, AC inverters + complete audiovisual system for cinema in the bush-insert a memory card into micro projector or connect phone through HDMI, hang a sheet between two trees and watch whatever you want. PSU replacing 2 x 100W roll up CIGS panels (being manufactured in Switzerland) add some wheels and off you go. Second prototype being built in northern Ghana in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned.

Happy 2020

We hope that 2020 will be the year that SociaLite lights up > 100 communities across Ghana and beyond. Thank you to all who have enabled us to get where we are today.

New Prototype Mobile Mini-Grid

Many of our new installations are going to be in communities that are too small to merit their own charging station. To overcome this, we are developing a mobile mini-grid. This image shows a prototype housing developed in Wa by Mustapha Osman of SociaLite Ghana.

New Labels

Finally ran out of the labels we first purchased in 2010!! They served us well - let's hope that the new batch from the same supplier, Sticker Giant in Longmont CO, performs as well in the bush.
