Ilumexico is a sustainable response to the lack of electricity services in extremely poor communities in Mexico. Using a solar powered led lighting system, Ilumexico also has a social program teaching people to understand the importance of using clean technologies in their communities and the impact on the reduction of CO² emissions they are helping to achieve. The main pillars of Ilumexico are renewable domestic technology, social responsibility, efforts to slow climate change and productive projects strengthening local economies.
