Solar LED Lamps, Torches and Home Lighting System for remote villages in India
The aim of this initiative is to provide power to children primarily for their education and also to households for various activities during long load shedding hours in remote villages in India using renewable energy source.
Under this initiative Scitech Park has implemented the following activities:
- Distribution of Solar LED lamps with solar panel to 1018 school children from 4 extremely remote tribal villages in naxalite prone areas of Nanded District namely Pardi Khurd, Daheli, Daheli Tanda and Kosmet of Kinwat Taluka.
- Distribution of 2300 Solar LED Lamps with Solar Panels to school children in remote Kinwat and Mahur Taluka of Nanded District, Maharashtra.
- Solar LED lamps were distributed to 1007 tribal children of the Zila Parishad high schools and Ashramshalas from Khodala, Suryamal, Wakadpada, Adoshi and Poshera villages in Mokhada Taluka of Palghar District, Maharashtra. The ‘Scitech Surya’, Solar LED lamps were distributed to minimize the use of kerosene lamps for long hours which in turn gives out smoke and poses a threat of respiratory diseases in children.
- Distributed 255 ‘Scitech Surya’ Solar LED Home lights to tribal families residing in the remote hamlets those are situated inside the Bhimashankar Wildlife Sanctuary, Maharashtra. This initiative was taken up to provide light to those tribal families who had never seen light in their life and these hamlets are devoid of grid connectivity.
