transforming lives through solar lighting

''We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Natures inexhaustible sources of energy like sun, wind and tide. I would put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.''
Thomas Edison
