Solar for India’s slums

Solar lights are providing light and jobs in India’s slums.  India’s economy is hurtling along even faster than China’s, yet a third of its population – about 400 million people – still live without electricity. … every night in the shanty-towns of India’s cities, the air fills with the dense smoke of kerosene used for lighting and cooking.  … the smoke is a killer – equivalent to consuming up to two packs of cigarettes a day.
