Post closing of funding round, HPS is taking measures to significantly improve operations
of existing and newly installed plants
Initiatives Taken
1. Set company wide operations’ metrics to
improve the uptime for all the power plants
2. Documented more than 80% of all the current
operating processes
3. Invested resources and capital to accelerate
results driven R&D efforts
4. Initiated collaboration with suppliers to further
reduce equipment cost and maintain leadership
in installation cost/kW
Power to Empower
Implications
1. Monitoring plants continually followed by
auditing process make operators and
managers aware of their responsibilities
2. Documentation reduces variations of operating
and maintenance process from plant to plant
3. Collaboration with IDEO resulted in developing
a very low cost pre-paid meter system that will
further reduce the theft rate
4. Working closely with suppliers help in further
reducing the cost and improving the quality of
equipments

The company is currently exploring multiple avenues to monetize alternate revenue streams
New Business Development Activities
1. Piloting a project with Airtel to become cell
phone towers’ energy provider in rural areas
Long Term Impact
1. Provides a long term stable source of revenue
and may give HPS an opportunity to become
Airtel’s channel partner to distribute its products
2. Partnering with Havells, an appliance company
3. Exploring must-have product development
options with RHC (HPS’s waste)
4. Collaborating with established corporations
both in India and USA to explore development
of new products/services with a focus on rural
areas
2. Brings reliable and efficient CFLs at customers’
door-step and provide 10-20% cost advantage
to beneficiaries
3. Develop new products such as Incense sticks
(also called agarbatti) etc. that can be
immediately monetized
4. Brainstorm sessions indicate HPS becoming a
conduit to reliable rural demographics data for
CPG companies in addition to developing local
must-have products and services
