SULI, YOUR PORTABLE SUN: a solar module, that will change the way you use light

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 19, 2015

SULI, YOUR PORTABLE SUN

YOUR PORTABLE SUN

The light of the sun is everywhere, it belongs to all, but only a few have the means to transform it into usable energy for our daily life.

SULI is a portable solar module that will change this reality, democratizing access to light for everybody.

We felt motivated to launch this campaign to share this idea with you, so you can give us feedback, and most important of all, to ask for your support to achieve our next big goal: Start our first massive production.

This is our story…

____________________________________________________________

EVERY IDEA STARTS WITH A SMALL SHINE OF A LIGHT.

For years we explored and developed different solar lighting solutions, until we realized we could create a portable solar module, able to be attached and fitted in different ways to change its functionality. 

And thus we created SULI – a solar module that charges during the day to shine in the night, adapting itself to a variety of situations.

TECHNICAL DETAILS

LIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE: ONE MODULE FOR DIFFERENT NEEDS.

SULI is portable, multi-functional, and can be adapted to different uses in everyday life through accessories printed in 3D technology.

LIGHT YOUR BIKE, YOUR WORK, YOUR TIME, YOUR LIFE.

 

SULI modular system adapts to different accessories or to PET bottles in a very easy way:

SULI COMMUNITY: THE OPEN-SOURCE MODEL.

We want to create a SULI community, allowing us to develop new ideas together, through a model open for everybody, where we can inspire creativity and innovation.

This way, every user can be a part of our team – designing, creating, building and sharing new ways to use the SULI light.

We believe that the 3D printing world is the future.

___________________________________________________________________________

OUR OBJECTIVE: MASSIFY AND DEMOCRATIZE THE EVERYDAY USE OF RENEWABLE ENERGY.

We know that SULI is very useful for people enjoying the great outdoors and looking to shift to a more sustainable lifestyle, but we also believe that SULI can bring high-quality, sustainable light to those who do not have it.

Turn off your light for 5 seconds and imagine there are 1.5 Billion (almost 1 out of 7) people that do not have access to electricity.

All these people spend their small budget to buy candles and kerosene. Solutions that are not renewable, very toxic and dangerous, causing 1 million deaths every year by intoxication and fires.

Without light kids cannot study longer after school, entrepreneurs cannot be more productive and streets become more dangerous.

Be a part of the solution and help us transform this reality!

SULI is more than a solar lamp. It is a model for social and environmental impact in which all can participate and access solar energy.

OUR FIRST SOCIAL PROGRAM: LIGHT FOR BOUTIN, HAITI.

Our first project is to deploy SULI modules in Boutín, Haití, in Central America.

Haití is the poorest country in America and only a few years ago it suffered a devastating earthquake. 

In Boutín approximately 3,500 people live without access to light or water. Moreover, there are 5 schools in the community and over 800 kids, effectively without access to better opportunities or a dignified life. 

To implement this project, we are partnering with AMERICA SOLIDARIA, a highly recognized Chilean non-profit organization with projects all over the American continents, especially in Haiti.

Their project WASH is delivering water to Boutín community, building 5 wells with free access for all. With your support, SULI is joining this initiative by providing light for the wells. 

Furthermore, if the support for our campaign is large enough, we will bring SULI light to schools so kids, parents and teachers may have more study hours.

Finally, if the support is amazing – we will install SULIs in the homes of Boutín.

Therefore, we created a SPECIAL PERK for those who can pay a little more to help others with limited economic resources to access the solar light of SULI.

HELP US SHINE: CHALLENGES & GOALS.

Light is creativity and energy, therefore we are constantly developing new ideas and uses for SULI.

Our goals in the short and mid-term are to start our first massive production in China, then with your collaboration and feedback we can start the second stage of product development that will allow us to add amazing features such as a USB PORT to charge smartphones.

We want SULI to be even smarter than today, adding a BLUETOOTH that allows it to connect to a smartphone app and be controlled at distance, or putting many SULIs together, creating a big system that can shine even brighter and light up bigger spaces.

But today, our main goal is to make SULI a solution that can be within everybody´s reach. Help us spread the word and reach as many people as possible.
