The Solar Light Company is based in Freshford near Bath, Somerset. We are the first company in the UK, perhaps the world, to introduce such a large selection of some of the best solar lights on our planet. Our range is sourced from four continents and eight countries. Our lights do prefer sun but thanks to increased efficiency they work happily in the UK. We leave ours on a window ledge and know that it will be ready when we need it.
Our ethos is very simple, we want our customers to enjoy the experience of using sunshine to light their way at festivals, while camping or when the car breaks down. In sheds or horseboxes or in the car for emergencies.
Each of our solar lights or solar lanterns has been field tested in the most extreme conditions in Africa and India. They are hard wearing, portable and some have the added advantage of being able to charge mobile phones. On GAP year trips or for camping our solar lights can be used as solar lanterns for your security or to replace the task of finding fresh batteries in far flung places if you're travelling. Solar power is free to access and while many people use their solar light or solar lantern abroad many also use theirs to light up their horsebox or tent or caravan or even their way home. They also make fantastic gifts.
In Africa and Asia particularly in rural areas kerosene is used for lighting. As a highly flammable liquid, spillages and resultant fires result in many deaths and disfigurements each year. As a result many companies around the world have started up as Social Enterprises to reduce dependence on kerosene by designing the lamps you see on this site. Each solar light bought in the western world subsidises solar lights in the developing world which can only be a good thing. Eventually no one will need to use kerosene and together we can make that happen.
If our solar lights or solar lanterns break down, fall apart or simply stop functioning with normal use within one year we will replace it or refund your purchase price, as you prefer.
