About Us

Solar Urja through Localization for Sustainability (SoULS), an initiative by IIT Bombay, includes active interventions based on implementation & system science perspectives to help provide clean energy access in rural India by developing a sustainable, localized solar eco-system.

At the heart of every developmental milestone lies the power of the people. When technology that is clean, renewable, sustainable and affordable reaches the grassroots where it is most needed, the positive impact can be staggering. What makes it work is the ability of the locals to take up the responsibility, ownership and mobilization of using that technology to create change.
