Orb Energy brings affordable, reliable solar-powered electricity and hot water heating to communities across India. Many households and businesses use electricity from the grid, which is largely powered by coal, and struggles to cope with country’s increasing demand for energy. This project makes solar technology more widely available in rural and semi-urban areas, with 100 locally employed technicians encouraging more people to purchase solar panels or solar thermal water heating systems. Households are saving more than 50% on electricity bills, while gaining access to clean, reliable power and avoiding blackouts. The project reduces 25,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.
