Solar energy used to light up lamps in Morabandar village, at the Elephanta Caves

epa02503268 A girl and her mother look at a solar lamp outside their home in Morabandar village, at the Elephanta Caves, Raigad district, about 10 kilometer south east of Mumbai, India, 20 December 2010. The villagers do not have electricity as the village is not connected to an electric grid. As part of a pilot project, 30 homes will be given four lamps that will run on solar power. The project is a collaboration between Mumbai Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (MMRDA), Pune-based Science and Technology Park (STP) and Solar Gem, an Australian company, which will bear almost 90 per cent of the cost. Its 1,500 residents get four hours of power every, day – between 7 pm and 11pm – from diesel fed power generators provided by the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC).
