The lanterns read “Save the Climate. Act Now.” and call for renewable energy as a solution to Bihar's power crisis. Bihar is one of the most energy deficient states in India, with a rural population that has little or no access to vital public energy services. There are already instances of social entrepreneurs delivering electricity to villages through renewable energy, using decentralised models of generation and distribution. Greenpeace sees this as a means for delivering energy justice to the people, without exacerbating deadly climate change. The event was part of the Urja Kranti Yatra, a Greenpeace tour through ten districts of Bihar. The tour raises awareness of renewable energy and inspires citizens and civil society to demand an energy revolution in the state.
