Solanterns are an attempt to replace potentially dangerous kerosene lamps with more environmentally friendly solar powered lamps in Kenya.  A Solantern is available locally for 2000 Ksh ($25).  While the lantern requires a considerable initial investment, the long term savings are great, as families usually spend around $90 per year on kerosene.
