Aditya Aluminium in collaboration with the Odisha government has launched a project to facilitate uninterrupted, sustainable and low-cost solar power to four villages of Sambalpur district.

As part of its CSR initiative, the company has already installed solar-powered street lights in 4 villages - Bhursipali, Bhalupatra, Tileimal and Pitapali.

This electrification work has benefited 550 people, company officials said.

They said the company has installed 28 street lights.

According to Bibhu Prasad Mishra, chief operating officer (COO) of Aditya Aluminium, the company chose these villages for the project since they have 300 sunny days.

The company also intends to roll out more such programmes of this kind.

"Safe and sustainable electric energy has already been distributed for free to these villages. The well-lit streets mean that the villagers can now move in and around their neighbourhood without fear after dark. Their children could study under the solar powered street lights.

In addition, the village youth have been trained to carry out repair and maintenance activity in case of an emergency," added Mishra.

The villagers welcomed Aditya Aluminium's initiative.
