Solar plan for Indian computers
: "Authorities in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh have drawn up a pilot project to use solar power to run computers in village schools. Nearly 80% of houses are estimated to have no power, and many villages suffer frequent disruption in supply because of power cuts or other faults. Many have to use kerosene lamps for light and most government-run primary schools have no power at all." There is rural experience with solar for other purposes, such as battery charging and water pumps. "Last year 109 solar pumps were installed, but the administration now aims to install 400 in 2004.
