WHAT WE DO

We install solar mini-grids and sell the energy for domestic and productive uses in rural India. We support these communities to build financially and environmentally sustainable businesses from the energy produced. The villages experience positive environmental, social and financial outcomes such as a reduction in CO2 emissions and increased household incomes. Women spend less time on domestic chores and children study longer under healthier lighting.

PRODUCE WELL ■ CONSUME WISELY

Wasteful production and consumption deplete the earth’s resources and cause harmful greenhouse gas emissions. They threaten everything we care about: well-being, security, culture, landscape and financial stability.
