Description:  “In India, roughly one-fifth of the population has no access to electricity. Solar direct-current microgrids can provide reliable, affordable electricity to areas not served by the traditional grid…We know that this technology can transform lives. We’ve seen what even a modest level of access to electricity can do, and we’ve heard many moving and inspiring stories from villagers who now enjoy comforts, conveniences, and security that they never thought they’d have. This is one of those rare moments when technological breakthroughs can come together to make it possible to do good on a massive scale. For the 1.2 billion people in this world who still live without electricity, it cannot happen soon enough.”
