Electrifying Villages and Schools in India

Commitment by

Applied Materials Foundation

In 2011, Applied Materials Foundation, E+Co, and SELCO committed to improving education, health, and economic opportunities for students and adults in rural India through the use of solar power electricity and lighting. The commitment seeks to provide a reliable and environmentally friendly source of electricity for 1,000 households and ten schools in villages in rural India, while also expanding household access to finance for home solar systems. In addition, this plan will provide training for other E+Co entrepreneurs from Africa and Central America so that they can replicate the model in other regions.
