Cheap "solar bottle bulbs" make debut in power-starved Nepal. The Ujyalo (which means"light"in Nepali) project is bringing daytime indoor lighting to homes of low-income households in Nepal by installing water-filled plastic bottles through holes in their roofs. The manufacturing cost of each bottle is only 1 U.S. dollar and 78 cents. The low-tech alternative to traditional light bulbs is one of the most cost-efficient and greenest ways to light up homes. Ujyalo draws inspiration from the "A Liter of Light" project popularized by Illac Diaz, a social entrepreneur from the Philippines, who has made waves in the world of sustainable development through his project. Diaz spread the simple technology originally conceived by Alfredo Moser from Brazil and wants 1 million bottle lights installed around the world by 2015.
