Solar energy is available everywhere and to everyone. Last year, the Global Himalayan Expedition (GHE) successfully installed a solar power grid in Shade, the remotest village of the Zanskar valley in the Himalayas.
The village of Shade, which is home to a total of 11 families and about 70 residents, is not the easiest journey. It takes around seven days to trek from the last motorable road to Shade.
GHE is a social impact enterprise focused on creating tangible change in the remote Himalayan communities. The organisation aims to install sustainable and scalable solar power for the rural population of the Himalayan ranges.
The great Himalayan ranges continue to bear the effects of climate change including longer summers, heavy rainfall, floods, droughts and soaring temperatures.
Almost 3,000 Himalayan villages are based above an altitude of 13,000 ft, which means they remain cut-off from the world for over half a year.
