India being an agricultural country and lot of dependency is on electricity for irrigation. Lack of electricity infrastructure is one of the main hurdles in the development of rural India. India's grid system is considerably under-developed, with major sections of its populace still surviving off-grid. As of 2004 there are about 80,000 unelectrified villages in the country. Of these villages, 18,000 could not be electrified through extension of the conventional grid. A target for electrifying 5,000 such villages was set for the Tenth National Five Year Plan (2002–2007). As of 2004, more than 2,700 villages and hamlets had been electrified, mainly using solar photovoltaic systems.
Developments of solar technology are considered as a potential alternative that allows an electricity infrastructure consisting of a network of local-grid clusters with distributed electricity generation. It could allow bypassing (or at least relieving) the need to install expensive, lossy, long-distance, centralised power delivery systems and yet bring cheap electricity to the masses.
With a vision to bring Electricity to rural India Solar and Wind Energy Pvt. Ltd aims to electrify these hapless rural areas of country where electricity haven’t reached even in this modern world. Though the government promises to have electrified most part of the country by setting up high transmission power lines, but still the situation hasn’t change and the nights are still dimed and gloomy in absence of electricity.
