“We are honored to receive the “Le Monde – Smart Cities Award for Energy” – Ajay Singh, Founder, Nimray Solar
“This award not only honors our country India, but also makes it easier for consumers to identify the potential of solar energy. I am really happy to see Government’s active participation in Solar energy, Prime Minister NarendraModi’s push to use Solar energy is really a boost for Indian Solar companies. NimraySolar’s prime goal is to change how India uses Solar energy and pays for it. We will be introducing our own Bitcoin wallet where user can buy or sell Solar energy with crypto/Digital currency and earn from it for the next 20-25 years. We want India to be independent from power cuts forever and power up small rural areas with Solar Energy” said Nimray Solar Founder Ajay Singh
