As floodwaters begin to recede in Brazil’s southernmost state of Rio Grande do Sul, claiming the lives of nearly 200 people and leaving thousands homeless, the financial toll of the destruction is just beginning to reveal itself.

According to preliminary data from the National Confederation of Insurers (CNseg), the financial impact of the climate disaster is estimated at more than $2.2 billion USD.

The historic rains in Brazil are just one more example of the increasing challenges of extreme weather across the globe.

In the face of the escalating climate challenges, characterized by floods and an upsurge in pest swarms, a number of businesses are increasing introducing more environmentally friendly solar solutions to the market.

Techko Group is one such company.

Next Generation Solar Lantern

Solar Zapper Lantern, launched this week by Techko Group, fuses solar technology with outdoor pest control, incorporating a climate-friendly technology to support the industry’s growing emphasis on sustainable solutions that mitigate environmental impact.

The Solar Zapper Lantern can be used for a number of settings, and can transition from indoor use to hanging on a patio or functioning as a tabletop lantern.

Designed for use in homes, the company’s lantern can be charged using solar power during the day, with the option of USB-C charging for added convenience.

Solar energy is one of the cleanest sources of energy, and it’s an extremely effective way to make households more efficient and sustainable. Solar solutions don’t release harmful gases into the environment and the source of their energy is abundant.
