Solar lamps installed in Mehtawas- LANXESS supported the local community by installing eight solar street lights in Mehtawas village, neighboring Nagda.

Until now, the residents of the village did not have proper street lights and frequent power failures in the Nagda region make lights powered by electricity unreliable.
