Established in 2008, Husk pioneered an off-grid power generation and distribution solution to serve rural customers in Bihar, India. Husk was the first company to use 100% biomass gasification from rice husk to generate 6-7 hours of electricity for households and small businesses.

In the first five years, we grew to reach 10,000 customers, and in the process learned that rural customers wanted more than just access to power at night. They wanted "on-demand" reliable power - night and day - to meet all their energy needs that ranged from LEDs, to refrigerators, to welding machines.

By understanding how rural customers aspired to use power, we developed an energy solution that gave them the freedom and flexibility they desired. In 2014, we pioneered a hybrid system that could generate 24/7 power by synchronizing solar and biomass gasification power plants. This innovative system reduced battery storage requirements by 75% resulting in cost savings of more than 30%.

Our solar-biomass hybrid power plant is the lowest cost solution that can deliver 24/7 alternating current (AC) power to households and commercial customers such as welding machine shops, telecom towers, rice and flour mills.

By bringing AC power to rural communities we are giving customers the opportunity to plug in any off-the-shelf appliances like TVs, refrigerators and industrial machinery.
