Husk Power Systems designs and provides end-to-end renewable energy solutions by installing mini-power plants, operating mini and micro-grids that deliver electricity as a pay-for-use service to villages. The company has created a proprietary technology that converts biomass waster into electricity.
The company aims to provide people with a service that can be used to light houses, save cash by switching from kerosene lanterns to compact fluorescent lamps, and generate additional income by starting microenterprises and running small electricity-operated machines. In essence, at each power plant, the company establishes an eco-system that creates shared value for all stakeholders and boosts economic activities.
