SOLAR POWERElectricity supplies are very unreliable in the areas we operate in, and in Andhra Pradesh it is not unusual to lose the power twice a day.Shanti Nivas is where our Hospice is situated, the hospice serves the needs of the terminally ill, and also acts as a hospital for minor illness or recovery, it requires constant electricity for equipment and the storage of medecines.It is our wish to install a solar power system of sufficient capacity to power the entire site off-grid, 24 hours a day, making the supply of power seamless and removing the need for permanent generator standby and running costs.Not only will this improve life on the site, but the saving in costs will allow more practical use of the charity’s funding.
FOCUS ON SHANTI NIVAS
