Power for All
Through its Saubhagya initiative, India currently is at 99.99% electrification with only 18,734 households without electricity. However, the quality and reliability of electricity access remains an issue, as does the long-term sustainability of the largely grid-based approach. Power for All’s work in India is focused on building a powerful, evidence-based narrative for the country’s decentralized renewable energy (DRE) sector, to spotlight its critical role in not only providing quality, fiscally responsible and customer-centric 24/7 electricity services to India’s rural poor, but improving livelihoods and generating economic activity and employment.
