Investigating Solar Street Lights in Mandi and Kamand Public

Downloadable Content

open in viewer

Solar street lights are installed throughout Himachal Pradesh, India to promote small-scale solar, but many are broken. We disassembled lights and conducted interviews with residents and experts to understand the relevant factors, finding that the street light program suffers from inadequate maintenance and that solar is often not the best lighting choice. Finally, we piloted a training program for residents to perform light diagnosis and developed an appropriate technology rubric for selecting evening lighting solutions for Mandi’s slums.
