In the heart of rural Delhi, a transformation towards a greener tomorrow has well and truly begun. This radiant transformation is thanks to the visionary efforts of TP-DDL, a leading power distribution company, and endeavour such as Village Consumer Group (VCG).
Village Consumer Group Initiative
The Village Consumer Group, created by TP-DDL, is not just a name but a symbol of change and progress. Their mission goes beyond the provision of electricity; it is about fostering a sense of responsibility towards energy conservation. In rural areas, where access to reliable power is a cherished luxury, the VCG is making strides to raise awareness and provide energy-efficient solutions to local communities.
Throughout the year, TP-DDL’s VCG runs awareness programme on various issues like energy conservation, health & hygiene, and promotion of sports among others.
“The idea behind the entire initiative of Village Consumer Group is to establish a strong connect with villagers and build trust within these communities,” said a TPDDL spokesperson.
And to facilitate faster adoption by villagers of rural Delhi, VCG at times set up counters wherein energy-efficient products such as fans, tube lights, and more are offered to villagers at reasonable prices. These products not only reduce energy consumption but also help save money for the villagers.

One of the flagship programs under this initiative, which is getting remarkable success is the Roof-Top Solar Installation for energy conservation. The Village Consumer Group has implemented this groundbreaking project in several villages, including Jyotipur, Nizampur, Auchandi, Pooth, Salahpur, Qutubgarh, Kanjhawala, Jhatkhor, Dariyapur, Bankner, and Bakhtavarpur. These once-dark villages now sparkle with renewable energy, thanks to the installation of 100 kW solar panels, serving 24 households in this financial year.
But the VCG is not stopping there. Their ambitions for the current year are even more dazzling, with a target of 1 MW in solar power. Currently, 80 to 90 kW of solar capacity is in the pipeline, set to brighten the lives of many more villagers. This expansion will not only enhance energy access but also contribute to a significant reduction in carbon emissions.
The impact of TP-DDL’s Village Consumer Group initiative extends far beyond the installation of solar panels and the sale of energy-efficient appliances. It is about empowerment, sustainability, and a brighter future for rural Delhi. As more villages join the green revolution, they are not only becoming energy-savvy but also active participants in building a sustainable tomorrow.
In these often-forgotten corners of Delhi, the Village Consumer Group is proving that change is not just possible; it is inevitable. The story of TP-DDL’s VCG initiative is a testament to the transformative power of community-driven, sustainable solutions. It’s a story of hope, resilience, and a commitment to making the world a greener, brighter place—one village at a time.
