An Israeli startup is on a mission to bring the benefit of natural sunlight indoors into our homes, workplaces and even hospitals.

Solight addresses the issue of lack of sunlight in indoor spaces by creating a solar lighting system that takes the natural light of the morning and afternoon hours and channels it into desired spaces, providing health benefits to those stuck inside and cutting exposure to artificial light.

The company was founded in 2012 by brothers Ofer and Dror Becker, who recognized the energy-saving advantages of sunlight but also realized that its health benefits shine brightest.

“We understood that energy saving is just the tip of the iceberg,” Ofer Becker tells NoCamels. “In monetary terms, all the experts agree that the wellness benefits are probably around 50 times more valuable than the energy savings.”

Solight’s patented technology is installed on rooftops. Its static arrangement of mirrors funnels the sunlight into rooms between the hours of 8am to 4pm, reducing the need for artificial lighting during that time.
