CRISIL Ltd. sought WISE’s support to install a solar PV security lighting system for ‘Maher’, a Women and Child Welfare Centre located in Shirur in Pune, Maharashtra. The project was conducted under the CSR activity of CRISIL Foundation—the public charitable trust of CRISIL Ltd.
Maher (meaning “my mother’s home” in Marathi) is an interfaith and caste-free Indian, non-governmental organization that provides shelter and support to destitute women and children. After considering the requirements of the welfare centre, CRISIL, under WISE’s technical guidance, installed 13 solar street lighting systems for the women’s hostel and main building campus. As part of this project, WISE conducted two training programmes for CRISIL employees. The training programmes involved the basics of renewable energy technologies and introduction to solar PV installations.
