I am fundraising to bring solar lighting to unelectrified communities in India


The hamlet of Katra is tucked away off a small paved road in Barabanki District, Uttar Pradesh. The residents do not have access to the electricity grid and so cannot read or study and the adults cannot take up income generating activities to earn additional income. Mera Gao Power builds, owns, and operates micro grids in Uttar Pradesh, India serving off-grid villages with high quality, dependable lighting and mobile phone charging services.
For approximately INR 50,000, Mera Gao Power builds a micro-grid to serve a typical hamlet. Typically, four of its staff walk into a village in the morning, set up the micro-grid and leave that evening with customers receiving service. The system generates, stores, and distributes power on its own, turning itself on and off each night automatically. These factors, along with the availability of a reliable & inexpensive source of energy, makes MGP’s micro-grid attractive to these villagers.
