Bandhan Renewable Energy Program(BREP)


Background of the program

With the objective of providing sustainable electricity at low cost without harming the environment, Bandhan has taken a step forward in serving the deprived rural populace. The initial idea is to provide this renewable form of energy through lamps and lanterns (varied shapes and sizes). The benefits of these lights are that it improves health condition, supports extended hours of livelihood activity, it’s a safer option to use as there is no chance of fire or getting burnt from the same etc. and above all harnesses the unlimited natural source of solar energy.

Bandhan in partnership with Arc Finance, USA flagged off its first solar program in the district of North 24 Parganas, West Bengal in March 2014.

In October 2015 this program has been expanded in Jharkhand.
