about

Since its inception, Avani has brought solar lights to the remote and inaccessible villages of Uttarakhand. In those early days, the rugged terrain kept the region disconnected from the electric grid. Solar lighting for every home was a sustainable, accessible option. We created community-based systems for development and dissemination of solar lighting and heating technology for rural use. To fabricate, install and maintain these systems, we trained community members as solar technicians. The entire village enthusiastically participated in contributing to the upkeep of these systems.

Avani has trained over forty local youth as solar technicians, about half of whom are young women. They comprise a reliable local maintenance network, which now handles all solar technology repairs.
