What we make

What we make

In 2012 we created Luci®, an inflatable solar light, 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

Why we do it

With Luci, we were aiming for something much bigger than convenience. We want to empower the three billion people around the world who still live without reliable access to electricity. 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.
How we help

How we help

We founded MPOWERD on a sustainable business model that allows us to provide our clean and safe solar lights to people in developing countries at prices they can afford. MPOWERD, as a social enterprise, we reinvest a majority of our gross revenues to achieve sustainability, grow our reach, and ensure the fulfillment of our mission.
More retail sites in developed world > Lower manufacturing costs > More affordable sales to the developing world.
