THRIVE® SOLAR ENERGY PVT. LTD., is an independent Renewable Energy Solutions & Technology provider focusing primarily on the Solar Photovoltaic Applications and has built a significant track record in implementing Solar Projects world-wide.
Having identified energy as a basic human right, Volunteers for Rural Health, Education, and Information Technology (THRIVE)
an NGO founded in 2001 by Ranganayakulu Bodavala, a Harvard alumnus and public health management specialist, developed a series of solar LED home lights by combining the concepts of energy efficiency and renewable energy. It has collaborated with World Bank and UN in spreading the concept to the tribal and rural populations in many Asian and African countries like India, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Kenya, Haiti, Tanzania etc. THRIVE®
has been one of the pioneers in the world to take a hands on approach in reaching to the most deprived sections of the population with an innovative, reliable and affordable clean lighting solution.
THRIVE® SOLAR evolved from the technology innovations of the NGO - THRIVE. In the absence of a committed manufacturing partner for its innovative rural lighting efforts, THRIVE started its own solar technology division. In 2007, THRIVE® ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES PVT. LTD., (TET) was born, and later renamed as THRIVE® SOLAR ENERGY PVT. LTD. in 2013.
Thrive Solar specializes in solid state lighting (LED based) products and solar based power systems that help provide clean lighting, reduce carbon emissions and assure higher levels of productivity in rural and urban vocations. It has developed a range of innovative lighting products that help not only communities living in small rural/forest households with no electricity supply but also large urban institutions that consume megawatts of electricity.
