  • Jreda lights up far off villages of Jharkhand


  • The idea was to somehow provide electricity to every household with at least six hours of power supply that became daunting when it reached to hilly, difficult and inaccessible terrains of Jharkhand, dotted with proscribed outfits.


  • At the same it also presented an opportunity for the authorities to grab and show their mettle. And, the Jharkhand Renewable Energy Development Agency (JREDA) accomplished the job of electrifying every single village of Jharkhand and thus making the State without any powerless village.


  • As many as 250 such hamlets scattered at forested and hilly areas of Chatra, Latehar, West Singhbhum, Sahibganj, Pakur district were so far on the fringe for the want of proper location and hostile situation required for traditional grid connected power supply. However, the status quo was beyond the acceptance.


  • Under the instructions of the Government of India in the field of power supply, every household has to be provided with electricity for at least six hours daily. When it became clear that traditional way of connectivity is not possible in those about 250 villages located not only very remotely and are inaccessible but also marred with naxal activities


  • JREDA went for standalone solar panel systems providing 200 watt of power for a home and also for micro grid of 8-10 kw for slightly bigger hamlets. Now done with installations of the power source at all such villages.
