DENVER (AP) — A Colorado entrepreneur’s solar light bulb company is part of relief efforts for victims of earthquakes in Turkey.

Stephen Katsaros founded Nokero International, which got its start making handheld lights powered by solar panels. It has offices in Denver and Hong Kong.

The relief agency ShelterBox says Nokero’s lights are being included in kits that ShelterBox is distributing in Turkey.

Nokero, which is short for “no kerosene,” is aimed at serving communities that don’t have electricity.
