Henkel India to provide solar power to villages in Maharashtra

In line with Henkel’s global Sustainability Strategy for 2030, the German adhesives maker’s Indian arm, Henkel Adhesive Technologies India Private Limited, has embarked upon its CSR project Lighting Lives, which aims to provide electricity to villages in Maharashtra by installing solar panels.
 
As part of 2015-16 budget speech, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has set a deadline of May 1, 2018 for 100 per cent village electrification. Under the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana, the ministry has allocated a fund of Rs 8,500 crores to achieve this key target of rural electrification. “As a sustainability leader, Henkel through ‘Lighting Lives’, intends to contribute to this development story of India while continuing to shape the business responsibly and increase economic success,” said Henkel India in a press release.
 
This initiative, currently in the pilot phase, has seen installation of solar cells in three villages situated in the Palghar district of Maharashtra. The solar power generated has successfully supplied electricity to the homes of 150 people and to the schools attended by about 1,600 children. The project will be expanded to include other villages and public facilities.
