MPOWERD is a New York City-based B Corp that creates innovative and affordable products to help people fit clean energy into their daily lives.

What we make

MPOWERD created Luci, an inflatable solar light, in 2012 with the goal of making an affordable clean energy product that people could use in any situation — from outdoor camping adventures to backyard parties to everyday living for people in developing countries without electricity.

Luci taps into a source of light that’s limitless and readily available to everyone on our planet — the sun. Advancements in renewable tech have given us the means to literally put the power of the sun into a device that fits in the palm of your hand.

Why we do it

With Luci, we were aiming for something much bigger than convenience. We want to empower the lives of the 1.5 billion people living without electricity in developing countries.

So we made a light that’s clean and safe – pretty much the opposite of the toxic and expensive kerosene lamps so many depend on – because life doesn’t stop after the sun goes down. And we built a business model that allows us to provide our lights at a price everyone can afford.

How we help

Luci lights are already making a difference all over the world, from the towns of Nepal to the villages of Uganda to the mountains of Peru.

Through our Give Luci program, you can buy a light for someone who really needs it and send it to them directly.
