Project Description

Lalpur has predominantly poor and landless agricultural laborers with poor access to healthcare and education. The village remains untouched by the electricity grid.
70 families in Lalpur village will receive an electrical connection enabling children to read and women to cook in the evening.

Purpose / Goals

Each family will be charged Re. 1 per day for 4-5 hours of electricity. Hence a total of 70 families will generate a monthly income of Rs. 2,100.00. The yearly income will be Rs. 25,200.00. A solar technician will be given an honorarium of Rs. 1,500.00. This implies an yearly expenditure of Rs. 18,000.00. The balance of Rs. 7,200 will be used to replace the batteries every five years. The batteries will cost around Rs. 35,000.00. The balance amount will be used for other maintenance of inverter and other devices. Hence, this will be a sustainable enterprise after the initial investment
