Visitor’s Review of Dharnai Village:
“Visited Dharnai Village as part of Good Governance Yatra 2017. Dharnai Village is India’s first fully solar powered village.
The sarpanch of the village Ajay Yadav Mukhiya (7903905861) has indeed done a remarkable work in using solar power to provide electricity across all major consumption centers in the village.
They have solar-powered street lights, motor operated water distribution in the farms, Village anganwadi, Panchayat office etc. They were assisted by Greenpeace in this undertaking. “
