A battery backup ensures power around the clock…This includes 70 kW for electricity generation and 30 kW for 10 solar-powered water-pumping systems with three horsepower each.

A dependable power supply has boosted the local economy, and brought a welcome improvement to the social life of the villagers…” click here for more
