TMA Launching Renewable Energy Project

The continuing escalation in demand for energy in rural India has serious consequences, especially in terms of air quality, resrouces, and access to energy. The need to ensure sustainable development requires not only combating climate change but also eradicating energy poverty and securing energy supply.

One part of the solution is use of solar-powered LED lanterns. These lanterns are expensive to purchase so TMA, partnering with Partners in Green Development (PGD), proposes establishing a fund to purchse the parts to manufacture the items locally. The enerprise, managed by a women's self-help group in Nimboli, Thane District, will provide work for youth in a culture where jobs are scarce.
