PwC supports solar lighting in Pali Village

Jun 27, 2018

This initiative would be helpful in curbing light issues faced by this village in Pali district of Rajasthan

Rajasthan: P P Chaudhary, Minister of State, Law & Justice and Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India, inaugurated solar street lights that have been installed in Khariya Sodha village in Pali district of Rajasthan.

This initiative underscores PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) India Foundation’s commitment towards the underprivileged section of society that has limited access to reliable electrical lighting.

This is a welcome move as the  Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas,  Dharmendra Pradhan, observed at the World Economic Forum earlier this year, that India has a strong focus on renewable energy sources.

Jaivir Singh said, “At the PwC India Foundation, we are always looking for opportunities to help communities with their most basic needs. With this view in mind, we decided to provide public lighting to villages in Pali and hope that this initiative addresses safety concerns, is able to enhance the lives of the local community and make solar lighting a more acceptable way to eradicate light poverty.”

Expected to benefit over 5000 individuals, the project is part of the Foundation’s corporate responsibility initiatives that aims to enhance public lighting facilities in an environment friendly manner in six villages, across Pali district.

The draft National Electricity Plan Dec 2016 predicts that 57% of the total electricity capacity in India will come from non-fossil sources by 2027. Non-fossil consists Hydro, Nuclear and Renewable Energy Sources.
