Founded by T. Patrick Walsh in, He designed and sold the ﬁrst solar-lantern prototypes in 2006 in the state of Orissa(India): brighter and healthier than kerosene lamps, but affordable enough, so people could purchase them without subsidies. The idea of Greenlight Planet was thus born.
In 2007, Mayank Sekhsaria and Anish Thakkar joined Patrick as co-founders, and the three set out to make Greenlight Planet a reality with the vision that smart design, efficient engineering and innovative distribution strategies could make dirty kerosene lanterns a thing of the past. The SunKing brand was thus born!
