No batteries. Solar powered! 

Great for use in rooms where lights are habitually left on!

Saves Energy!

“It’s durable. The energy level lasts long. It is convenient when you don’t want to use JPS light” – Rachana McPherson, FELS, Class of 20111

Dear UTech, Jamaica,  Alumni Communitiy & Friends,

With your help our recent LUCI LIGHT FUNDRAISER, JULY 2016 was a success! Thanks to you, 95+ persons offered support. TOGETHER we exceeded our minimum sales goal of 100 lights and sold 144 Luci Lights + attracted open donations from persons who didn’t want lights, but wished to support UTech, Jamaica! Contribution $1700.

Our purpose for our fundraiser is to support the University’s Student Welfare Fund, as well as Student Engagement & Alumni Engagement activities.

“It makes a good night light on the lower setting and it does give good illumination on the bright setting.” Jody-Ann Finakin, SCIT Alumna

In July, we partnered with a retailer of the lights, and we received a commission. For August, 2016 we hope to purchase lights and retail them ourselves as this would be more advantageous to our University.

“Quite bright, lightweight. I keep it in the car for emergencies. I love it!”Hermine Bascoe, FHAS, Class of 2006

We also hope to arrange for Salary Deductions for UTech, Jamaica Staff who may be interested in purchasing Luci Lights.

“We’ve been having power cuts and were very elated to have the use of Luci Lights. It has adequate illumination, allowing us to even read the newspaper.”Basil Clarke, Class of 2002
