Panasonic Donates 110 Solar Lanterns to Indonesian Villages

Panasonic donated 110 solar lanterns and shades to the village of Sone, in West Timor, Indonesia, which has no access to electricity. The lanterns featured shades bearing animal designs that were submitted to an international design campaign called “Cut Out the Darkness.” Villagers enjoyed a special moment when all the lights were turned on at once, making a “zoo of light” appeared before everyone’s eyes.
This donation was a part of Panasonic’s fiscal 2014 (to end of March 2015) activities for its “100 Thousand Solar Lanterns Project,” in which a total of 100,000 solar lanterns will be donated to off-grid communities around the world by 2018. That year happens to be the hundredth anniversary since Panasonic was founded.
