It’s heart warming when I saw my invention being used to light up areas hit by Yolanda. Thanks to Shelter Foundation and TESDA for helping spread this technology.

It only started as a design challenge to light up at night the bottles on the roof that were promoted by Illac Diaz.

The design had to be simple using locally available parts and the device can be easily fabricated and repaired by local people.

After building the first prototypes, the interest to replicate this just spread like wildfire. Please sponsor the dissemination of the solar LED lamps to light up more lives. This is my contribution to humanity, galing sa Pinoy para sa mundo (from Filipinos for the world).

Engr. Silverio T. Navarro Jr. graduated Electrical Engineering at CPU in 1989. During his student days, he designed the electronic bell of Central Philippine University that plays the Alma Mater song to signal the start/end of every class period.


For readers who might search in the Internet and read the article about the Solar Night Light being attributed to University of Sto. Tomas engineering students, here’s what Silver said:

“I taught the UST students how to build the solar LED lamps with an instruction manual and guided them to talk to TESDA to promote this nationwide. There are several parties claiming who started this but they know it was yours truly who designed and built the first prototype. It’s self glorification to fight for this claim, so I focus more in helping others benefit from this technology. Others will use this for financial gains with selfish ends, so be warned.”

    If I remember right, Silver (as we used to call him), worked as a Student Laboratory Assistant at the then CPU Computer Education Laboratory in the College of Engineering and immediately after graduation as a full-time staff of the Affiliated Non-conventional Energy Center (CPU-ANEC), now CPU-Affiliated Renewable Energy Center (CPU-AREC), for almost a year where his love for solar/renewable energy sparked and had its beginnings. CPU-AREC is proud of you, Silver!

    Goose bumps because I feel proud it’s one from Iloilo who invented this bulb. You should be recognized from among the group of BS ECE of Univ. of Sto. Tomas who claims to discover this device. As the TESDA Focal for this program, it led me to question the documentation online as well as from actual activities at the Central Office such as this thing was discovered by the UST group of students. Were you one of them please? Thank you.

    He should apply for a patent of this invention to protect it. I am sure lots of bussiness people are thinking to copy it.

    uhhhmmmm paano gawin? i would love to try it

  7. Arnold Tanoy says :

    Is this different from the solar light lamp invented by Alfredo Moser from Brazil in 2002?

  8. Dan Dorillo says :

    Silver Navarro is a colleague at REAP (Renewable Energy Association of the Philippines). A graduate of Central Philippine University in Iloiilo, his invention could very well alleviate the situation of the people in northern Iloilo who are also suffering from the effects of Yolanda.

    Hello, Sir! I would love to know more about this. Some of my friends sent me money to buy a generator but it would be expensive and costly because they need gasoline. Can someone pls direct me to the contact person? Thank you!
