Decentralized

Decentralized renewable energy systems play a crucial role to ensure access to electricity even at places where grid extension is delayed or not feasible. Mainly two purposes are solved by RE based decentralized systems in India – lighting and water pumping. Apart from solar based standalone systems, small wind and mini hydel plants are also used as decentralized RE systems...
