Solar Street Lighting Systems(47 KB)

Uttarakhand being in Himalayan Region, most of the part of the state is remote and in difficult geographical conditions. Out of 13 districts in Uttarakhand, 11 are hilly.  The people living in remote and inaccessible areas are still far away from the basic facilities like electricity, drinking water, road etc. Most of these villages exist in the upper Himalayas having no facility for street lighting. During night, villagers cannot move to their 'Chhanies' (the nearby place where cattle of the village are housed together) due to fear of wild animals. Women are facing more problems as the path ways are not illuminate. During past years UREDA with the support of Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) provided Solar Street Lights and found this system to be very useful for villagers.

UREDA since from its formation has installed a total number of 3750 solar street lights up to the year 2008 for facilitating the people living in remote and inaccessible areas and then installed another 1226 and 1147 solar street light during the year 2008-09 and 2009-10 respectively. It is the year 2010-11, where UREDA is adding another 14648 solar street lights in the state of Uttarakhand.
