Hande and his company, foundation-grantee SELCO India, are using a decentralized approach to spread solar solutions to provide cost-efficient, clean energy that improves the quality of life and livelihood among the poor in India – where nearly half of all households do not have electricity.

The free event is sponsored by The Lemelson Foundation, PNCA’s MFA in Collaborative Design, Illahee and Mercy Corps Action Center.

Hope you can join us!
