The Vision
Affordable solar energy everywhere

Epishine will provide affordable solar energy for people living in rural and remote areas. They are often paying the highest energy prices and their current solutions are either health damaging or bad for the environment. We will replace those and offer clean alternatives they can afford. Our first product is a two-module portable energy device consisting of an exchangeable solar sheet and a charging device comprising a battery and USB-ports for powering lights and charge mobile phones. Next step is lightweight village solar systems for rural areas. Final step is huge lightweight and floating solar plants.
