Philips SIS - A range of Solar Indoor System

Philips SIS enables off-grid households to light up their homes.

Philips SIS range offers an alternative source of electricity, that is free, green, and sustainable, thus helping to stop the 88 billion litres of kerosene burnt purely for light. The solar panel and connected battery of Philips SIS are powerful enough to light a home during evening hours, to power a fan in order to stay cool, power a fridge, and to connect with the world with a mobile phone, using the USB charging port. The system enables to extend social and economic activities into the evening hours while eliminating the health issues of kerosene lamps.
