Solar power lights up 10 Karnataka villages
Monday, August 02, 2010

Plagued by power shortage but determined to find a way out, 10 villages in Karnataka have switched to solar power. Kerosene lamps and ‘chullahs’ are now things of the past. Anitha Pailoor documents this journey from darkness to light.d to light
It’s half past eight in a tiny village called Neeralakatti, 15 km from Dharwad where Mangala is sitting at home, busy grading farm-picked brinjals as she has to send the vegetables to the market early next day.

Kamalavva is preparing dinner while her children are completing their homework. Although the village suffers from intermittent electricity supply, villagers don’t seem disturbed by this problem as they carrying on their daily activities using solar lamps installed in their homes. Solar energy has helped light up lives of 80 homes in this village.
