Bloomberg Philanthropies announced a $5 million impact investment in Little Sun, manufacturer of portable, solar-powered lamps. This impact investment marks a huge step both for Little Sun and the off-grid lighting sector as a whole, pointing the way for future investors. Having undergone a rigorous diligence process to evaluate the viability of its business model, the example of Little Sun shows that off-grid lighting companies can provide enormous benefits to populations living off the grid while still being economically viable. GOGLA congratulates Little Sun and Bloomberg Philanthropies on their cooperation and hopes that more of this kind will follow. For more information, please find a press release here.
