SDN initially distributed portable solar lanterns to urban and semi urban communities in Rivers State in order to better meet the decentralised energy needs of vulnerable groups. The Solar Portable Lighting Project sells individual renewable lights directly into communities through a local Community Distributor.

Local entrepreneurs leverage upon existing relationships in their core communities to distribute environmentally friendly solar lamps to lessen dependency on expensive diesel powered generators.

This case study shows how the distribution of solar lanterns feeds local demand, creates business opportunities, and can save Niger Delta households an average of $70 a year.
