Here in California, skylights are found in many homes, cleverly taking advantage of the year-round sunshine, and thus reaping the green benefits of saving energy and money. It’s just plain good sense! Still, they’re usually regarded as a bit fancy and certainly a sort of higher-end, non-essential feature. Who knew the opposite would be true half a world away?

With some simple tools, sealant, and used plastic bottles, an innovative individual dubbed “Solar Demi” is giving renewed meaning to “let there be light”.
