It has been proven that solar power is effective and that (once setup) it can become a cheap and passive means to harness renewable energy. But the technology is not overly accessible to the public, so a project like Geo Lights is a brilliant way to slowly bring sun-soaking illumination into peoples' homes.

Kiran Gangadharan has designed an abstract splatter-shaped module that houses the small solar panels, the battery and the LED bulb necessary to make each piece function independently. However, his greater concept incorporates a way for separate units to share electricity by linking their little branches. This way, some can do the acquiring while others do the expending. Applications for Geo Lights allow them to be installed on the walls of interior rooms or even assembled into intricate outdoor pavilions.
