Shoot: Rural Electrification in India

GP0STO42X
“Do you know what it is like to get plunged into darkness every single day?” asks Ratnesh Yadav, COO, Husk Power Systems. “It feels like a nightmare that never ends.”

Getting electricity in rural India is a dream. A dream that remains unfulfilled for 300 million in the country. But Ratnesh and his company have set out to turn this dream into a reality.

Husk Power Systems, set up by Ratnesh and his childhood friend Gyanesh Pandey, uses rice husk to generate electricity. Starting from electrifying Tamkuha village in Bihar in 2007, their ingenious biomass gasifier has today lit up nearly 2 lakh lives in over 85 villages in rural Bihar. In neighbouring Uttar Pradesh’s Sitapur village, another company Mera Gao Power is using solar to bring light to India’s darkest corners.

Since electricity touched these villages, lives of those living here have transformed immensely. More and more people are prioritizing education; children are able to study longer and get better grades; shops can remain open late for business and income levels have gone up. But most importantly, the two companies have delivered what villages like Tamkuha and Sitapur need the most – the right to a better future.
