#Solar power changing the face of poverty in India

Dear Meeks,
Getting up to read this early in the morning was a delight. It really made our day at piconergy. I along with my team at piconergy thank you for taking so much time to understand about our work and write about us. It really means a lot to have someone who thinks like us and take extra effort in supporting for the job that we are doing.We really appreciate your interest in the issue that we are trying to solve. We are now in the post pilot stage of our start-up and it has a long way to go considering it is not as much an easy task to have all the resource with very little money that we get to pump in back to the production, because this product is to be designed and developed for the bop segment and needs lot of efforts and understanding but when we look at the smiling curves on our customer’s face it gives us all the energy to work and do more, we really look forward and strive to making this society a place for everyone to live, a place which will be known with energy poverty as its past. Just Clean, Affordable & Reliable energy for ALL

Again, A Big Thank you Meeks for such a lovely articulation of our work and yes, We would love to serve you considering the problems that you have been facing as mentioned .We are working towards your request of sending a sample, which can potentially benefit some of the indigenous communities in Australia too

Lets stay in touch.☺
Cheers,                                                            Anjali

Meeka's Mind

Large, corporate power suppliers often cite baseload [the amount of energy needed to satisfy the minimum energy demands of a given society] as the reason for dismissing solar power. Solar panels/arrays don’t work at night so solar must be useless for baseload.

On the surface, the need for baseload power does appear to leave solar out in the cold, but…all baseloads are not the same. In India, there are tens of millions of people for whom baseload equates to just one light bulb. These are the people living in distant rural areas, or city slums, or simply on the pavement. They are poor in a way we in the West cannot even imagine because, despite their poverty, they have to spend a significant portion of their tiny monthly incomes on kerosene for their lamps, or batteries for their torches. All because they are too poor to tap into…
