Solar Power from Rural India
The Gandhi Rural Rehabilitation Centre, a multi-purpose center in rural India that provides employment for physically and mentally challenged individuals living in surrounding villages. Daily activities include weaving, tailoring, and embroidery, among others. The centerâ€™s power grid is unstable and experiences daily power outages, which can last for hours at a time. In an attempt to remedy this, National Institute of Technology, Trichy and Auburn University partnered together to bring solar power to the GRRC to provide a more stable and environmentally-friendly source of power.
