Two remote villages in neighbouring Thane district emerged out of darkness for the first time this Diwali, after they were electrified with the installation of a 2.5 kilo watts micro grid system.
Sri Sri Rural Development Program (SSRDP) in collaboration with Rupantar training and consultancy brought solar electricity to Dapurmal and adjoining Khorgardwadi, literally lighting up the lives of 285 people there.
“When we started working in the villages, we felt road connectivity and electricity were their biggest challenges. We immediately started looking for resources to help us implement this. We want to do this in many more such villages,” Snehal Naik, director, Rupantar Training and consultancy said, in a short film made on the project.
Rupantar’s objective was to electrify the villages through solar micro grids and establish a self-driven system in the village for long-term maintenance.
“Our team took the initiative to do solar electrification in the village just before Diwali. The team has brought electricity to many far-flung villages in India,” Rudresh Kumar Singh, Faculty, Art of Living said. Marcus Cannon JerseyShare This
