The use of solar power at the village level, through the silai schools and production centres, not only raises awareness of these environmental-friendly, alternative sources of energy, but also significantly reduces costs for the women running the production centres.

Millions of people in Indian villages, especially rural women and young girls, have benefited from solar energy. It has powered many day to day activities, from lighting and cooking to farming and other energy requirements.

The women who have come for the training, are learning new skills, and also being taught how to increase their output. Earlier, there was great uncertainty about being able to fulfil orders on time, with the electricity going frequently. USHA and TATA Power have partnered to train 15 women in 15 days.
