Operations and Business Development Manager, d.light

d.light was founded in 2006 and is an early pioneer in the off-grid solar space. The company was driven by a mission to eradicate the kerosene lantern through the introduction of affordable, high quality solar lanterns.. Through continuous innovation the d.light product offering has evolved from one simple affordable, durable, solar lantern to a complete range of multi-use portable lights, Pay-Go solar home systems (SHS), a back-end Pay-Go software platform, and energy efficient DC appliances. With our range of products, software and payment plans, we are able to provide solutions to fit any budget. d.light helped to establish GOGLA in 2012, and continues to play a central role in protecting the interests of end-users and Lighting Global quality-certified companies in multiple spheres.
