Every village (not every house) now has access to electricity in India.
Pretty amazing accomplishment.
“About 270 million Indians had no access to electricity in 2014 — making up one third of the world’s powerless.”
“After taking charge in May 2014, Modi announced his bold plan to provide electricity for all. The following year he added details, pledging to connect 18,452 villages identified as powerless within 1,000 days — in other words, by May 1, 2018. (India has more than 597,000 villages.) He followed up with a proposal to provide electricity access to every home by the end of March 2019. The first goal appears to be within reach. The second, though, may take longer.”
I’m sure the villagers appreciate fossil fuels.
