Philip Murgor


Philip, who is the head of a household of 10 with seven children in Kenya, bought a solar light in 2012. Before the solar light Philip was using kerosene lanterns to light his home. “I bought the solar light because I was told the benefits of it. I also wanted to cut the kerosene costs. I use it for lighting my house, my kids use it for their studies and I charge my phone. The solar light is much brighter and only uses the sun as its source of energy, it is less costly and it charges my phone too. The solar light has made me save a lot of money since I started using it and I no longer use money for phone charging and buying kerosene. Before, getting kerosene was a problem and now that I have the solar light which is good and reliable they are able to extend their studies. My kids study hours have increased, I don’t worry a lot unlike the time I was using kerosene because it was not reliable. My wife doesn’t complain of eye irritation, my kids don’t cough a lot and we don’t have allergies anymore.”
