Simple Solar Power Kits Bring Light To Western Kenya

By Aimee Lutkin

BioLite is known for their work building technology for people who want to live off the grid and produce clean energy. Their smokeless fire pits cut emissions while producing power for things like smartphones and tablets. But their stuff isn't just for camping.
