A robust and cheap Solar lighting device based on the principle of Passive and Active Solar Device which provides both day and night lightning solution.
Micro Solar Dome has a transparent semi-spherical upper dome made of acrylic material which captures the sunlight and the light passes through a suntube having a thin layer of highly reflective coating on the inner wall of the passage. It also contains a lower dome made of acrylic. There is a shutter in the bottom of the lower dome which can be closed if light is not required in the daytime .Th...SEE ALL
Micro Solar Dome has a transparent semi-spherical upper dome made of acrylic material which captures the sunlight and the light passes through a suntube having a thin layer of highly reflective coating on the inner wall of the passage. It also contains a lower dome made of acrylic. There is a shutter in the bottom of the lower dome which can be closed if light is not required in the daytime .The shutter is made of polycarbonate sheet pasted with film. This is only for daytime lighting. The integrated PV module fitted in the dome charges a special battery during day time which in turn provides light during night from the MSD for about 6 hrs through LED fitted in the lower dome.SEE LESS
Stage 5: Scaling
Impressed by the efficacy of MSD, DST entrusted NBIRT to install in different slums of metro cities, rural and
tribal belts on experimental basis. It is now field tested in different agro-climatic conditions under a network project of SEED of DST

Rural areas in India are electrified non-uniformly. If available it is for few hours in the evening time, resulting in darkness in the daytime also. Due to lack of space the condition of urban slum houses are worst. Many dwellers burn kerosene lantern throughout the day or they use electricity. In absence of sunlight inside room the children and women suffers a lot from various diseases. In many parts of Europe there is an act regarding availability of minimum 4% sunlight inside living room.
Micro Solar Dome provides light both during the daytime and nighttime. In the daytime, it acts a an Active Solar Device by providing light directly from the sunlight. In the nighttime, it provides light from the LEDs which are driven by the energy stored in the battery with the help of the integrated PV panels, thereby acting as a passive lighting device.
