BMC Software Lights up a Village in India

Oct 13, 2011 BMC Software, has launched an unique initiative to "gain by saving" by replacing lighting fixtures in its Pune office facilities with higher efficiency LED Lights from Hanul Technologies resulting in over 65 percent savings in power. These savings will be donated to a remote village outside of Sakur India to light the streets and homes and bring "New Life After Dusk" to the villagers.

BMC Software joined forces with Hanul Technologies to identify 23 households near the Sakur village in Sangamner Taluka of Ahmednagar district to launch the first project. BMC Software donated solar-powered LED lighting systems to each household and installed street lights in the entire village to give the villagers a 'New Life After Dusk'.

The systems were installed and formally handed over to Dr. Sandip Aher, Tehsildar of Sangamner Taluka by the BMC Software Corporate Social Responsibility team in late September. BMC is planning to complete the replacement of the lamps in its facilities within the next six months, so the company can realize immediate savings that will in turn power villages such as Sakur.
