EcoSOLUTIONS is an NGO focussed on providing solutions which will make a significant difference in the lives of the very poor.
For a start we have identified Solar based LED lighting system as one of the main means of improving life in villages which either do not get electricity or get intermittent electricity. Solar panel provided charges the battery during daylight hours. The power stored in the battery runs the LED lamp throughout the night.
- This simple solution makes a dramatic difference in the lives of many:
- Women folk who have to cook food at night, take care of small children, often in darkness.
- Young students for whom availability of light provides means to study at home in evening hours.
- Men who can continue their work in evening like running their shops, tailoring, watering of fields. This also results in stoppage of the practise of using kerosene lamps and candles which are a great safety hazard.

- Those who can afford and are ready to pay the full amount directly.
- Those who can only pay money in small instalments
- Those who just cannot pay as their daily income is so low that they can barely eat food.
How do we identify whom to give the Solar Led lighting system?There are three categories of people:
The first category of people help us to propagate the concept in the villages. Many people are initially sceptical whether the lighting system really works or whether it is a marketing trick. Once they see the light installed and working in their own village homes they get convinced. It is at this point that the second category of people come forward. Uptil now we are agreeing for payment in instalments at our own risk. The instalment amount is decided based on the ability of the person to pay. There are no fixed rules for this. As of now no extra interest is being charged for payment in instalments.
For the last category of people charity seems to be the only way. We are still trying to figure out if a really tiny instalment mechanism can work out. However it is this category of people which are often left out and they really need the support. Our objective is to reach out to these people and make a difference in their lives and give them hope.
Currently the Solar LED system we provide costs from Rs 850 to Rs 1700.(US $15 to US $40).
