  • Source: The World Energy Outlook released their 2011 report with slightly updated figures (the USAID report cites their 2010 report): "The number of people without access to electricity remained unacceptably high at 1.3 billion, around 20% of the world’s population." (Executive Summary, WEO 2011)

  • Timing: 3 minutesKey Message: S2 is positioned for the education channel because of its task light design as well as ultra-affordable price. d.light wants to jumpstart the success of off-grid African students by providing them extra hours to study and protecting their eyesight.Target: explain that our focus for d.light S2 is within the education channel are secondary school children, especially those getting ready for exams as that is the most critical time for their success and the time d.light can make the biggest impact for themWho are they? Secondary school student living with family in a kerosene and candle dependent home. He/she is transitioning into adulthood and taking more responsibility for themselves and their family, looking towards education as a way to contribute to their family’s success. He/she is still dependent on the support of her parents. He/she desires to make her family proud. Literate. Heard of solar before but no firsthand experience.How do we want them to feel by using d.light? “I feel more confident that I can help my family succeed”
  • Timing: 10 minutesKey Message: drive home d.light S2’s light, portable design at an ultra-affordable price point, then walk through the other technical features showing all the features that comes with this compact package Tough and sturdy design: remind audience of the car test Dual charging solar & AC: but emphasize that we encourage people to use solar and do not actively push the AC charging feature since it defeats the purpose of solar charging Adjustable support: besides being able to pivot the light in the desired direction for lighting or charging, the stand can be removed and the light will fit in your pocket if you would like to take it out with you to use on the street (demonstrate how it works)High-efficiency integrated polycrystalline solar panel: integrated solar panel removes the complication of installation and wires,this is the solar panel that should face the sun for proper charging Weather resistant for sun and rain: similar to the water test on S300 we’ve seen in module 2, S2 has the same quality. Weather resistant means it will be OK under the rain; however, it’s not “water proof”…so if one were to immerse the light into a bucket of water, it will break Smart solar indicator for charge intensity: the light lit up red to indicate the battery is charging, the more intense the light, the more charge it is getting from the sun Ultra bright LED light: brighter, longer-lasting, and more durable than incandescent light bulbs. * FYI: LED stands for light-emitting diode and is a semi-conductor light source * Advantage of LED Efficiency: LEDs emit more light per watt than incandescent light bulbs. Their efficiency is not affected by shape and size, unlike fluorescent light bulbs or tubes.On/Off time: LEDs light up very quickly and ideal for lights for frequent on-off cycleLifetime: LEDs can have a relatively long useful life. Ours last 50,000 hours of useful life, though time to complete failure may be longer (failure usually takes the form of light getting dimmer over time vs. abrupt failure like incandescent lights). Fluorescent tubes typically are rated at about 10,000 to 15,000 hours, depending partly on the conditions of use, and incandescent light bulbs at 1,000–2,000 hours.Shock resistance: LEDs, being solid state components, are difficult to damage with external shock, unlike fluorescent and incandescent bulbs which are fragile Designed to last for more than 3 years Certified by independent third parties
  • Timing: 3 minutesKey Message: By providing 4 hours of light, d.light S2 allow students to extend their study timePass out Hand Out [Education Study #4] and refer to it: data by Sagduru Foundation shows solar lighting increases students’ study time by over 1 hour per dayPrompt the audience to get them
  • Timing: 3 minutesKey Message: d.light S20 is designed to be a versatile lantern that meets families various lighting needsTarget: explain that our focus for d.light S20 is for families and use at home (even though it can certainly be used to do other things)Who are they?Young growing family with children in school or planning to attend school if they can afford it. Routine use of kerosene and candles without electrical access. Focused on being a good mother/wife and helping her family get by. Open to new solutions but unable to take big financial risks. There are no literate family members and no English comprehension. She has not heard of solar products and has never seen one before. Second hand mobile phone ownership.How do we want them to feel by using d.light? “My family is delighted by the many things we can now do with better light”
  • Timing: 10 minutesKey Message: drive home d.light S20’s light, portable design, and 360 degree illumination that gives an even white light 4 times brighter than a kerosene lantern. then walk through the other technical features showing all the features that comes with this compact package Smart solar indicator for charge intensity: the light lit up red to indicate the battery is charging, the more intense the light, the more charge it is getting from the sun (can also charge via AC like S2) Multiple setting handle allows flexible usage: already demonstrated in previous slide High-efficiency integrated polycrystalline solar panel: integrated solar panel removes the complication of installation and wires,this is the solar panel that should face the sun for proper charging Weather resistant: similar to the water test on S300 we’ve seen in module 2, S20 has the same quality. Weather resistant means it will be OK under the rain; however, it’s not “water proof”…so if one were to immerse the light into a bucket of water, it will break 2 brightness setting: (already shown in previous slide) Designed to last for 3-5 years Certified by independent third parties
  • Timing: 5 minutesKey Message: d.light S300 is positioned to target more forward-thinking individuals who are interested in investing in a product that will enable their further successTarget: explain that our focus for d.light S300 is small business people, farmers, mama mboga’s and those professionals that are do not make substantial amounts of money Photos from left to right, top to bottom: coffee farmers, small business man, phone charging booth, farmer, mechanicsWho are they? Family Decision Maker with older children in school and/or helping with the family business/farm. Relatively successful compared to the rest of the community.

  • Timing: 10 minutesKey Message: drive home d.light S300’s rugged, sturdy design, then walk through the other technical features showing all the loaded features in this light Battery charging indicator show the level of battery charge: we will get more into this in Module 5 Light and Mobile charging in 1 device: comes with 6 adaptors for the most popular phones (get someone to charge their phone with this to see for themselves) Weather resistant: remember the water test…can drop it too to demonstrate strength 4 Brightness setting: already mentioned High-efficiency integrated polycrystalline solar panel: integrated solar panel removes the complication of installation and wires,this is the solar panel that should face the sun for proper charging Weather resistant: similar to the water test on S300 we’ve seen in module 2, S20 has the same quality. Weather resistant means it will be OK under the rain; however, it’s not “water proof”…so if one were to immerse the light into a bucket of water, it will break Designed to last for 5-10 yearsRobust circuitry for long-life performance• Deep discharge & overcharge protection to preserve battery life Certified by independent third parties
