In these socially distanced times, we have converted many of our Greenlight Academy programs to virtual sessions to ensure Greenlighters can continue growing and developing new skills.

How do you prioritize and manage time? Let us know in the comments section

We believe that access to power is a basic human right. Energy access is even more critical during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic. In areas like Kenya, where distributed energy services have been designated as #essentialservices, we are taking many precautions to protect our staff and customers while ensuring continuous service to our customers.

To all the essential workers that are filling a critical role to ensure we all have access to healthcare, food, water, medicine, energy, and all the other essential needs during these unprecedented times: THANK YOU!

Here's to celebrating all the health workers working at the frontlines, and behind the scenes, to keep us safe, strong, and healthy, especially in this global COVID-19 pandemic. You are our heroes! Thanks for working selflessly to keep us healthy.

To reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends washing your hands with soap and running water for at least 20 seconds.

A little trick to make sure you're doing this right is to sing the 'Happy Birthday' song from beginning to end twice.

We came across this handwashing lyric generator ( that shows you how to effectively wash your hands to a song of your choice. What songs are you singing as you wash your hands?

#StaySafe #HandWashing #Covid19 #Coronavirus

We know things are a bit rough right now, and many of us don't feel very happy at the moment. But this is a wonderful reminder to find the light, to be happy and grateful for what we have. On this #InternationalDayOfHappiness, stay bright, stay safe and do something to make you smile 🌞

Sun King Lamps introduced to improve educational standard

We are delighted to kick off a new series titled hashtag#SunKingSchoolStories looking at how solar home systems and appliances enable children to study in a comfortable, safe environment without fearing power outages or accidents caused by fuel-based sources of light during their study time.
