Santosh Devi, 19, repairing solar lanterns in her home workshop. She graduated from the Tilonia village Barefoot College (run by an NGO that provides education in rural communities), as a solar engineer in 2009. Since then she has supplied solar power to 20 homes in her village, making it the first village in India to be 100% solar powered. She also maintains the neighbouring village's solar power systems.
