India still needs to add about 218 Giga Watt power to satisfy electricity demand for year 2016-17 and 298 GW for year 2021-22. As renewable energy is becoming more accessible, electric power is decentralising. So, the solution to overcome the challenge lies in Micro-Grid (Gram Power) development...

Due to use of better grade materials and optimum design, sudden failures are reduced along with lower cost of maintenance, leading to increased life expectancy. These benefits add up and balance against the inevitable increase in purchase cost – as additional copper in the windings and better materials in the core will be used in the manufacture of high efficiency transformers...
