Powering rural communities with 100 percent renewable energy, through one of the world’s lowest-cost hybrid power plant and distribution networks.

Husk Power Systems designs, builds, owns, and operates one of the world's lowest-cost hybrid power plant and distribution networks in India and Tanzania. Their 25-250 kW mini-power plants convert agricultural waste and solar energy into affordable electricity for people in rural areas. With its proprietary system that combines solar PV, biomass gasification, and batteries, the company provides decentralized, affordable, and reliable power to rural communities and businesses from 100 percent renewable energy sources -- 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Husk offers customers a flexible pay-as-you-go energy service, using a mobile-enabled smart metering system. Its solution is grid-compatible, meaning Husk can roll it out quickly and cost effectively to support national electrification plans. Moving forward, the company plans to add over 300 mini-grids in India and Tanzania that would eliminate 150,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year and serve over 100,000 customers.
