In the state of Bihar in India, an estimated 50,000 villagers are lighting up with bio power. Husk Power Systems is using an innovative technology mix to run off-grid mini power stations fired by rice husks - a by-product that would otherwise be thrown away and release methane as it rotted. The company says that the villagers benefit from a clean and safe power source, - especially compared to the kerosene lamps that they are often replacing.

Cell phones are charged quickly and cheaply, improving communications for rural villagers, and lighting is both improving businesses and delighting families. No more excuses for not finishing the homework though!
