Improved Lifestyle

Case-3

Sher Bahadur Yadav from Behrayen-UP, is a well to do farmer. However, two years back, Sher Bahadur was not very happy. Inspite of earning well, he had to compromise a lot on convenience. He had to draw water from the well for household consumption; could not watch television; had to use a hand fan to ward off the heat during summer months.
With the SPRD mini-grid being set up in the village, Sher Bahadur, immediately got connected. He now has a T.V. set, water pump, fan and bulbs running on to the mini-grid power. Sher Bahadur says,
“It is vacation time for my children. They can watch T.V. now. I also watch the news in the evening. Summer evenings are more comfortable now with the electric fan. Lifting water to the overhead tank just takes 10 minutes now. It is a good feeling when the house is well lit.”
