The Solar Village Project
Our mission is to bring solar power solutions to entire villages without access to the central grid. In today’s world, we believe electricity to be an essential resource, similar in importance to water, food, and shelter. Without it, people are marginalized. With it, people are empowered.

Technologies & Fuels
Other Technologies Fuels
We distribute Solar Home Lighting Systems to all the homes in specific villages one village at time. All the villages we work with are off the grid and have no access to electricity and rely on kerosene for lighting and sometimes cooking. In parallel we also electrify the village schools.
Clean Cooking Activities
The people of the villages we work with cook on the traditional mud stoves using dung, kerosene or brush. The air in their homes is very unclean they could truly benefit from these stoves.
We have all the logistical and community contacts necessary to implement a stove distribution and training demonstration to the people of Gauterine Village in Bihar India. We've been working closely with the people of Gauterine for 3 years and they are very comfortable with us.
