Development of solar power micro grid to electrify the entire village brings new hope for its inhabitants.

Greenpeace India and partners BASIX and CEED launch a solar-powered micro-grid in Dharnai village, Bihar, India, that could be a game-changing model for bringing reliable energy to millions around the world. The people of Dharnai village used to have a facility supplied by the state Government which provided electricity. This infrastructure hasn't been available for the last 33 years and diesel generators have been the only source of electricity.
