The company is aware of its social responsibility and has initiated action in this regard. The company has developed Li-ion based “Small Wonder” series of Solar Home Lights costing from $30 to $100. The lights are being distributed free to a few persons.
The company invites companies, institutions and individuals to sponsor this product for specific villages where they will directly donate this product to the poor with their names engraved on the product. The basic cost of these products are from US $30 to US$ 100 ( INR 6000/- ). Your donation will bring light to a dark house hold and brighten up the lives of an entire family.
Solar Power lights up the medical clinics of Sunderbans
Like his famous namesake, Subhas Bose is trying to bring about a revolution of sorts. Five years back the clinics run by SHIS, an NGO, at different blocks of the Sunderbans of West Bengal were mostly without electricity. The clinics, which include three boat dispensaries, provide medical facilities to the villages of the area. Unavailability of electricity at the clinics led to multiple hazards in running them. Pumping clean water, running necessary appliances during emergency were severely affected in the clinics. Besides, lights, monitor, sterilising machines also required electricity to run efficiently. In most cases the operations at the clinics were run with the limited electricity procured from generators which were inadequate in number. During the night and in the monsoons the patients could not get any medical assistance from these clinics due to unavailability of electricity.
In 2000 the area saw a marked change with 12 of the clinics getting electricity through solar energy as Subhas C Bose, CEO of Green World Corporation, partnered with SHIS, to provide electricity to the clinics with the paltry funds of the NGO.
"We provided lights for the entire clinics and the boat dispensary. Lights were put up at the pathological centres, surgery sections, patients’ room, doctors’ chambers, visitors’ room, microscope room, X ray and eye testing rooms and also at the engine room of the boat,” informs electrical engineer turned entrepreneur Subhas Bose.
