Banarasi saree looms run on solar power

Solar panels installed above the looms that produce the world-famous Banarasi sarees are helping these units access a cleaner form of energy to run their machines and deal with power cuts. The intervention, under TERI’s Lighting a Billion Lives (LaBL) programme, received financial assistance from Indus Towers under their CSR initiative, with co-funding mobilised from the community.
