Innovative thinking saves energy in Sitio Maligaya

In Sitio Maligaya a group of innovative thinkers are installing lightbulbs that do not use any electricity.  That’s right, these new lightbulbs uses nothing but the sun’s energy. Soda bottles are filled with water, sealed and then installed on a roof which allows the sun’s rays to shine through these water filled bottles almost producing the same light as a 60w lightbulb. Unfortunately there is no switch for these lights and they currently do not function without the sun’s rays :).

    Actually, this was being done in the Philippines ever since these bottles were introduced in 1970.
