Women in India disproportionately make up the 112 million who do not have access to electricity and ONergy Solar is moving even faster, eager to capitalize on one of the most untapped and challenging markets in the world. In the current Indian scenario perhaps the most exciting outcome in India of distributed renewables (solar lighting, home solar systems or mini-grids) is the impact on women.
ONergy Solar, the nine- year-old enterprise stands apart; the company has a bold plan for transforming India’s vast rural areas, where hundreds of millions live with unreliable electricity or no power at all. ONergy Solar’s innovative solar power solutions are providing energy to meet India’s development and social challenges. To promote solar as a clean and reliable source of energy, the company is training women entrepreneurs in its products’ technology, usability and special features. By partnering with local grassroots organizations – microfinance institutions, NGOs and women’s self-help groups – the company is imparting product know-how while also enabling these women to serve as company distributors – providing both income and empowerment.
Dinhata, a serene village with surrounded by hills in North Dinajpurand unpaved lanes dotted with huts and shops is one of the success stories of ONergy Solar in electrifying the rural areas where they have successfully demonstrated their viable business model to sustain the enterprise.Like in many other un-electrified villages in India, people in Dinhata depend on kerosene for nighttime lighting. As the dusk descends, women cook evening meals in the dim light of kerosene lamps and children struggle to read. Shops and local enterprises that aspire to work in the night, too, are forced to rely on this polluting and hazardous light source. ONergy Solar through its solar electrification has been able to bring a significant change in lifestyle and aspirations of people.

The emerging name for solar solution in Pan India, ONergy Solar has embarked on the vision of sustainable future by solarizing India since nine long and successful years. ONergy Solar, an integral part of ON Conglomerate provides complete solar solutions to households, communities and institutions. It provides design, engineering, manufacturing, installation, O&M solutions for solar rooftop power plant, solar irrigation pumping, solar lighting and microgrids. We have setup a range of solar solutions with over 50,000 installations in partnership with Government, Commercial / Rural Banks, Leading NGOs and MFIs – through its proprietary network of Renewable Energy Service Centers (RECs) with the strong mission to impact and provide solar energy to 10 million lives by 2023.
Amidst several hue and cry in India over the union budget for renewable energy, ONergy’s approach towards it is very positive and ONergy is ready to encash on the facility Government has given to the farmers with heavy dose of funding in the budget for ‘KUSUM’ (Kisan Urja Suraksha Utthaan Maha Abhiyaan) scheme. The refreshed version of the ongoing scheme doubles to 60% from 30% currently the subsidy for buying solar pumps. So the farmers can make extra buck or two by switching to solar power for running irrigation pumps and selling surplus power to discoms. ONergy has always focused on Onergising agriculture by installation of solar irrigation pumps in different regions of the country and with government’s support towards the farmers we will definitely be benefited from major shift of the agrarian industry to equitable energy source. The refreshed scheme envisages spending Rs 48,000 crore over the next 10 years to wean farmers away from diesel-run pumps and also convert grid-connected irrigation pumps to solar power for ensuring clean, reliable operation and the scheme entails Rs. 1.4 lakh crore roadmap to turn farmers into generators of solar power, which they can use to run their pumpsets. The Times of India (Mumbai edition) has stated, “The scheme will allow farmers to put barren land to profitable use by allowing construction of solar power projects on them. Altogether, 10,000 MW solar power capacity is envisaged to be built under the scheme.” ONergy will extend all support to the farmers to bank on solar power soon for extra buck.

Electricity generated from the coal plants is becoming costly day by day. As the result of this, the price of the Solar Rooftop Systems is also increasing.
The increasing dependence on the DG sets and the power cuts are causing damage to the surrounding. The demand-supply breach for electricity is also increasing in India that makes it vital for the people to begin thinking of some other ways to realize their energy requirements. Considering this point, the MNRE or the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is promoting the Solar Rooftop Systems. Several people in India have started to feel the need to install the solar PV system for their own houses or apartments.
