URJAL

About The Project

Project Urjal aims to provide permanent access to light in the slums and economically weaker areas of Delhi by installation of solar water bulbs which require minimal making and negligible maintenance cost. This is a first of its kind initiatove that aims to achieve energy efficient solutions and not only create a positive impact on environment but also allow yearly savings on electricity bills. Innovative solutions that provide a multitude of benefits to the needy are what we at Project Urjal strive for.





Impact

Selling bulbs will ensure a permanent source of income for the unskilled labourers and double the income of the skilled ones. It will incease the awareness on saving electricity and reducing power consumption among the people. By the end of this year we wish to light up more than 200 houses, creating more than 20 entrepreneurs.


IT NEEDS 20% OF LESS SPACE IN COMPARISON TO SOIL BASED GARDENS, AS PLANTS WITH SMALL ROOTS CAN BE GROWN CLOSER TO EACH OTHER.

IT USES ONLY 1/20TH OF WATER COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL (SOIL BASED) GARDENING.

THROUGH HYDROPONIC GARDENING, PLANTS CAN BE GROWN ANYWHERE AS LONG AS THEIR GROWTH REQUIREMENTS ARE MET.
