Last Mile Energy Access Initiative
Through ‘Light a Home’, SSRDP distributes solar lanterns & individual ‘home lighting systems’ in un-electrified villages of India and sets up ‘Solar Centre Hubs’ across rural India to provide last mile connectivity of high-quality and cost effective Solar Lanterns, Solar Home Lighting Systems, Solar Cookers & Battery Charging Stations.
Creating Entrepreneurs in the field of Renewable Energy
Solar Battery Charging Stations: SSRDP has set up a solar-powered multi-purpose battery charging station which is providing access to electricity for a tribal community that is still a long way from the power grid, and has never experienced the benefits of electricity.By this villagers can receive charged batteries for a nominal sum of money from the centrally-located charging station which has a generating capacity of 2 kilowatts of power from solar energy electrifying more than 50 households and 5 local stores on an average.
Setting Up Solar Micro Grids
SSRDP builds, owns, and operates micro grids in rural belts of India, creating off-grid model villages, with access to quality RE lighting solutions. SSRDP’s strategy is to design and develop a service-specific micro grid dedicated to providing household lighting and mobile phone charging. The design requires 90% less solar power generation capacity per customer compared to traditional solar powered micro grids.
