Indian government has selected ImpactPPA as the blockchain technology provider for a major economic development project. The government initiative, Bhartiya Harit Khadi Gramodaya Sansthan (BHKGS), which loosely translates to the “Indian Green Cotton Textile Village Development Organisation,” aims to employ up to 50 million women from various states.

The project supported by the ministry of small and medium enterprises (MSME) will install looms for textile work in women’s homes starting in Khanwan Village of Bihar. ImpactPPA will manage the engagement of a strategic partner’s technology to power the entire project using renewable energy, and then integrate and manage the supply chain with ImpactPPA’s blockchain technology.

The programme enables women to generate between Rs 8,000 and Rs 10,000 a month from home, approximately US $135. The MSME states that this will raise family income by 60 per cent in some of the poorest villages of India where the minimum wage is less than Rs 7000 rupees.

“It’s an honour to work with the government of India to deploy out technology solutions,” said Dan Bates, CEO of ImpactPPA. “A project of this scope clearly demonstrates that the use of renewable energy and blockchain technology has reached the mainstream. This partnership perfectly aligns with our fundamental mission to help improve quality of life with energy as the engine for social good and greater economic justice.”

The first installations are expected to be completed in June with a ribbon-cutting ceremony inaugurating the project presided by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the first textile processing facility in Khanawa where ImpactPPA is providing 100KW to power the plant and 2KW systems to begin deploying the solar powered looms for production. The government plans to employ several million women through its initiative with ImpactPPA by the end of the year.

“Having worked with the government of India on various solutions and projects for social impact, this alliance is a game-changer,” said Aradhana Singh, CEO and managing director of Sarang Services, the company serving as the local partner for this project in India “We are thrilled that ImpactPPA will be the provider of energy and blockchain technology and services for the project, bringing tangible economic growth opportunities while advocating women’s empowerment.”

ImpactPPA has created a model of deploying renewable energy systems in developing nations using blockchain technology. The ImpactPPA platform disrupts renewable energy financing to accelerate global clean energy production. Its tokenised model is designed to support communities in funding and deploying renewable energy solutions, untethering traditionally costly and inefficient structures for financing as well as managing the supply chain with blockchain technology.
