Nuru lights last for 20 hours on a single charge, and provide bright LED powered light.

20 minutes of gentle pedaling on our PowerCycle charges 5 lights at a time.

Job Creation

Our solution provides a sustainable and repeatable income for Bottom of Pyramid (BoP) communities.

Customers return weekly to
re-charge their Nuru lights and mobile phones.


The emissions from paraffin (kerosene) lamps are harmful to both the environment and respiratory health.

Each Nuru light displaces 0.2 tonnes of CO2 per annum.


Children are able to learn at night without the flicker of a candle or paraffin (kerosene) lamp.

Mother’s can nurse their babies without having to inhale harmful emissions.
