Pollinate Energy,  an Australian company, which is currently providing India’s slums with solar energy now aims to find a solution to the air pollution problem in country’s poorest areas.

ABC news recently reported that the company’s portable solar lamp, which has a port to charge a mobile phone, has replaced kerosene lamps in 8,000 homes. This is an important step towards sustainable development by saving the natural resources.

The company official added that indoor air pollution from kerosene lamps and stoves are the second leading cause of deaths in India, making the Australian lamp a potential game changer.

Pollinate Energy has employed local citizens to sell solar lights, which costs around 30 Australian Dollars (AUD).

Pollinate Energy co-founder Kat Kimmorley said, “Bangalore, the city that we started in, was the first city in India to become electrified over 100 years ago and yet still in Bangalore it is only 70-80 per cent electrified.”

The new light has allowed children to study with light and improved quality family and community time has also been reported.
