Key Features

Our efficient charcoal stoves for cooking, LPG appliances for cooking, and electric pressure cookers for cooking are faster, cleaner, cheaper cooking than alternative products. Our solar products for lighting and phone charging offer a clean light and phone charging at home.

Social Impact

Clean cooking devices reduce the time spent cooking, the money paid for fuel, and pollutant emissions very significantly. They are also more convenient and easier to use which helps with sharing the cooking chores amongst members in the family. For example, our stoves reduce the use of charcoal by half and save 3 tonnes of CO2e per year.

Solar products offer clean light and phone charging in the home, reducing expenditures in kerosene and in mobile charging services. It helps children to do their homework in the evenings.
