Creating a Solar Ecosystem by Local for Local
Further such an intervention which involved local communities gave a boost to the local economy through creating livelihoods, generating income, contributing to reduce the cost of solar products, and responding to the void that exists with regard to the market for solar products in their as well as the surrounding region. This was the desired step towards creating a local solar ecosystem, or SELL, that can ensure sustainability in terms adoption of solar technology and energy transition.
The corpus created through this initiative further led to the idea of setting up of solar module manufacturing plant. The corpus was invested in establishing ‘Tribal women owned Solar PV module manufacturing plant’, the first ever of its kind in the country and the world. The foundation stone of this plant was laid on auspicious day of 26th January 2017.
