According to Policy.mic, (http://mic.com/articles/89775/india-has-a-radical-plan-to-power-every-one-of-its-homes-by-2019) India’s new Prime Minister Modi of the Bharatiya Janata Party put forth the following goals:
-increases urban construction,
-extended high-speed rail,
-a cleaned up the Ganges river
-building “toilets first, temples later.”
-solar panels.

His party’s hope is to harness enough solar power to get a an operating lightbulb in each house by 2019, and if possible, “two bulbs, a solar cooker and a television” in each dwelling. Modi has stated, “We look upon solar as having the potential to completely transform the way we look at the energy space.”

Keep an eye out over the next half decade as possibly some of the methods used in remote areas with stranded resources will have application in Alaska’s rural areas.
