Home lighting is required to provide illumination when the environment is dark. Incandescent bulb has been a common device used to provide illumination, but needs to be powered by an alternating current (AC). This paper compares the benefit of using direct current (DC) devices to provide illumination than AC devices and hence reduces the cost of home lightning. A model was developed based on basic home lighting need in a developing community in Nigeria Ilaro. The study shows that using DC devices like LED light will reduce the cost, lower power requirement and also present a greater life span for the lightning devices and this can also by extension be used to reduce cost of lightning in urban settings.
