63% of all rural households in India do not have electricity and use kerosene for lighting. Even those villages, which are electrified face a severe shortage of power supply - frequent black-outs are common. The whole country is facing a power problem affecting industrial growth and GDP. Naturally, the Electricity boards fix their priority in the urban and industrial areas and hardly look at the rural conditions.
Given this background, there are very few options for the villagers: wait for the government to provide electricity or take the power in their own hands. Village RES facilitates the second option. Village RES helps people to assess the resource and come up with an appropriate solution. Village RES literally "empowers" the people by providing affordable solutions to the energy needs of the community.
