New Delhi: Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, in partnership with the SRF Foundation recently illuminated 15 rural public schools in Mewat district in Haryana as part of its CSR program called â€œJagmag Pathshalaâ€. This initiative has had a positive impact on more than 7,000 students in the district and aims to provide an improved learning environment for young students by upgrading their school infrastructure with solar lighting.
Each school is powered by a 3-7 KW solar mini-grid system that provides clean electricity to run lights and fans in the classrooms. In addition, these networks also power smart LED TVs in digital classrooms and water management equipment, thus enabling an overall improvement in school infrastructure.
Opening the event, Nuh District Commissioner Captain Shakti Singh (IAS) said, â€œIn today’s world, education is incomplete if students are not adequately informed about the importance of clean energy. It is no longer bookish literature but a real-time problem that requires adequate attention from everyone in the country. Clean and green energy is an important tool that can bring holistic development in schools, and I am happy that companies like Signify and NGOs like the SRF Foundation are stepping up to make their contribution and make a meaningful contribution to society. .
Natasha Tandon, Head of CSR, Signify India, said: â€œAt Signify, our vision is to unleash the extraordinary potential of light to create brighter lives and a better world. Through this program, we can achieve both of these goals, as we provide students with a bright and welcoming classroom fueled by sustainable energy. We hope this will make them do better in school and also help them learn more about solar energy.
