Global Himalayan Expedition (GHE) is a social impact enterprise that is focused on providing clean energy and digital education access for remote off-grid communities in the Himalayas.
For the past seven years, GHE has been instrumental in electrifying over 100 remote off-grid Himalayan villages with installation of over 540 Solar microgrids. These villages are located at an average altitude of 12000 ft, above sea level. For last few years, GHE has been working on creating entrepreneurial models in these high altitude areas, advocating use of energy efficient products, creating Solar Mountain Homestays that would serve the base of the pyramid customers and eventually providing stimulus to local economy, reducing local emigration and preserving age old cultural Himalayan heritage. In addition to the electrification work, GHE has also setup state of art digital experiential learning centers for students of these remote mountainous communities.
