Solar Atta Chakki, a sustainable  solution for enhancing livelihoods

Updated: Apr 26

Government is providing free solar powered flour mills or solar chakkis to women, so that they can run a small business of their own and run their families. This will not only empower women but also help in sustainable development.  This innovative scheme aims to provide solar-powered flour mills to women in rural areas, thereby promoting the use of renewable energy and enhancing the livelihoods of women. By facilitating access to these solar atta chakkis, the scheme not only supports environmental sustainability, but also empowers women by making them more self-reliant and economically independent.


What is a solar chakki?


Solar Atta Chakki is a revolutionary concept towards sustainable living that reduces extractive farming.

Its high-efficiency solar panels help in providing relief from irregular electricity, meaning farmers no longer need to pay expensive diesel costs as they grind their grains. In addition to the economic benefits, Solar Atta Chakki also offers an immense advantage where the environment is concerned - it produces zero emissions and helps reduce carbon output, creating a pollution free environment. It allows farmers to continue their traditional way of life while taking steps towards becoming more environment friendly.
