Philips Lighting powers up Barefoot College in Rajasthan

The college’s Tilonia campus now has access to reliable off-grid energy with a 116 KW solar system provided by Philips Foundation Philips Lighting (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, today announced that it has powered the Tilonia campus of Barefoot College in Rajasthan with a 116KW solar system, thereby enabling the college to have access to reliable offgrid energy. A grant from Philips Foundation replaced a thirty-year-old, aged-out solar equipment, more than tripling the kilowattage in parts of the historic campus that empowers rural women to earn their livelihoods. In a world where 1.06 billion people have no reliable access to power, electric light is a distant dream for many. One in seven people across the globe struggle to work, study, or help others after sunset. Philips Lighting is committed to ending this imbalance and has a vision to unlock the extraordinary potential of light for brighter lives and a better world. By applying technology, expertise and resources, we provide access to light, raise awareness of the importance of energy efficiency in protecting our environment and support humanitarian interventions.
