Are there any around the world???
Yesterday I was forced to drive in the night on highway. I don’t like it at all as on Indian roads almost all people always drive with full beams on lights which almost blinds the person coming from opposite side. Since, I work a lot on computers, my eyes have grown weeker year by year. The misery of driving on Indian roads increases when one passes through villages which don’t have electricity all through them but has all sorts of pot-holes and speed breakers…Thus, I was forced to think that all kind of developments take place in urban areas, but villagers and villages both almost always remain untouched be it in terms of electricity or in terms of quality of life in any otherway.
I have read that Germany has lot of innovations in terms of mobile enabled lighting available for use by it’s population. But I am not sure if they have same lights which can also be powered by solar energy.
I know a company in India that develops economical solar powered lanterns or high-power torches. I also know another company which makes mobile enabled switches. But, I strongly feel that while wireless enabled switch company may be ready to integrate their solution with others, the solar powered device maker will not agree for integration. Thus, I would like to ask all our blog readers…if there are any companies in India which can provide economical solar powered lanterns which can be mounted on poles in villages and can be controlled by mobile for switching on and off…
