Chinese Hanergy Thin-Film Power Group launched the »Lighting Africa« project at its first stop in Tanzania together with China Foundation for Peace and Development and Tanzania-China Friendship Association by promising to donate the first 100 »Humbrellas« this October.
As reported, »Lighting Africa« is a philanthropic project initiated by Hanergy and joined by China Foundation for Peace and Development this April in Beijing, aiming to provide environmental-friendly lighting devices to African children to improve their reading time and help the electricity deprived populations in Africa.
Humbrella is a new thin-film solar product developed by Hanergy. Weighing only 8.8 kilograms and a diameter of 2.7 meters, Humbrella is covered with thin-film solar panels, which is available for power generation on both sunny and cloudy days. Equipped with integrated functions of off-grid power supply, electricity storage, night lighting and terminal charging, the newly unveiled product is expected to store as much as 40,000 mAh, ensuring a 10-hour high-quality reading time for children, or charging more than ten 3,000mAh smartphones.
