Tinginaput is an ordinary village in remote rural India, where there are modern solar panels the size of a couple of A4 books, perched on the tiles of each roof. From these, wires lead into the houses, bringing light and power. Five tall street lamps have their own solar system as well - giving light through the night. The villagers say the best thing of all about the arrival of green power is that they no longer fear attacks from bhalu - bears - from the surrounding hills after dark.
