A solar energy project

The Corbett Tiger Reserve (CTR) and its adjoining forest divisions are famous for being one of India’s best-protected habitats for tigers. However, the villages around CTR have been facing irregular and erratic supply of grid electricity. In such cases, the overall quality of life is severely affected. Burning of fossil fuels affect the health of people and darkness prevents people to lead a secure life.

The Corbett Foundation in partnership with the Coca-Cola India Foundation implemented a solar energy project covering 62 villages - 3 villages of Almora; 28 villages of Nainital and 31 villages of Pauri districts of Uttarakhand
