There are thousands of villages in India that have yet to be connected to the national power network. And there are an equally large number of villages that despite being connected to the network hardly get enough electricity.
But now, a student from the Imperial College of England plans to change this those thousands of villages. Meet Clementine Chambon, thanks to her efforts, a village in Uttar Pradesh that has more than 100 houses now has access to continuous power supply.
Clementine, a final year PhD student in England, has been working with Oorja, a social venture startup. They have together set up a mini solar grid that provides electricity to nearly 1,000 people across the village.
Clementine feels happy about the initiative that has brought happiness to peoples lives across the village. Knowing that the children in the village will have the lights to study which gives her immense happiness. She hopes that the school in the village will eventually be able to establish a computer center, thus enabling children to learn computers.
She wishes to continue her work and install solar power plants in other villages of India as well. Once the solar power plant is set up, a smart meter is established in each house to measure the electricity spent in real time. The information collected by Oorja will be used to advance its services in future.
