Help Us Light Up 1000 Homes In Grid Deprived Regions In India


The situation 

Over 1.3 billion people worldwide live without electricity, not including those with electricity that isn’t reliable. Within India alone, over 300 million people lack this basic amenity. Electricity brings many advantages to villagers that are completely off grid.

“We live in complete darkness” said Balaji, a village laborer who we met on a recent visit to Vittalapuram, a village on the outskirts of Chennai. 
Any appliance that needs electricity is not an option to these people and many of these areas have major challenges to get grid electricity. They rely on Kerosene powered lamps which are hazardous to their health as well as their safety.

The goal is to get these people clean and safe electricity through solar energy so that they are not waiting for grid electricity.

The Project

As a second phase to our successful program , Light up the future of a child 2 years ago, Mesha Energy Solutions with support from the Department of Science and Technology (Government of India ) is working on a project to bring basic lighting and cell phone charging to 1000 households across grid deprived areas in 9 different regions within India. Through this project, We are trying to raise 6 Lakhs ($ 9000) , which will support 150 homes, to augment funds that is raised from programs like CSR and other initiatives.
 
The grid deficient areas identified are in:
•North East – Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland
•East – Odisha
•South – Karnataka, Andaman & Nicobar island
•North – Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand
•West - Rajasthan
