About Us


Solar Urja through Localization for Sustainability (SoULS) initiative, a flagship program of IIT Bombay, is based on the ‘Power to All’, including active interventions for providing clean, efficient, affordable and reliable energy access even to the last mile households. SoULS initiative encourages a localized solution involving local communities (localization) and ensures the transition from a ‘program-driven model’ to ‘market-driven model’.

SoULS initiative envisages creating a Solar Ecosystem by Local for Local (SELL) that will serve the local customers by ensuring the provision of local financial mechanism, local institutions and local services, also establishing local manufacturing units for sustainable adoption of technology. SoULS encourages locals to undertake ownership, responsibility and mobilization of technology to create a positive impact in the lives of the rural households.
