Nokero (NO-KEROsene) supplies affordable solar lighting that replace kerosene lamps and candles. Nokero lights charge by day and bring light by night. Today 1.3 billion people lack access to electricity, 1 million people killed yearly by kerosene fires, and $3.8 billion (U.S.) is spent on kerosene annually.

Replacing kerosene with affordable solar lighting changes lives in many ways:

  1. Increases a child’s study time by 50%
  2. Adds 3 or more hours of increased income productivity per day
  3. Eliminates harmful exposure to kerosene pollution and risk of fire

Nokero products are affordable and reliable. The cost of N233 product is the equivalent of the monthly fuel expenses for a family of four. Nokero has provided solar lighting solution in over 120 countries. Nokero is seeking reliable distributors of their products. Investment funds provide start-up capital to purchase inventory for new distributors. Charitable donation are also accepted. Working with partners around the globe such as Project C.U.R.E. a donation of as little as $10 provides a light to someone in need.
