This infrastructure hasn't been available for the last 33 years and diesel generators have been the only source of electricity. The development of a solar-power micro-grid to electrify the entire village brings new hope for its inhabitants.Greenpeace India and partners BASIX and CEED have developed a first-of-its kind in India 100 kW solar micro-grid that supplies around-the-clock electricity to more than 2,400 residents, 450 homes, and 50 commercial operations, including two schools and a health care facility. The reliable, affordable and quick-to-install micro-grid in Dharnai provides a model for communities anywhere living without reliable electricity supplies.
