The above - mentioned statement is an extract from the work of Surdas in which the one of milk seller’s urges her peers to go and sell milk in Vrindava, the place where Lord Shri Krishna resides. This would serve a dual purpose, which would be serving their deity Lord Krishna whilst carrying out the business of selling milk and earning their livelyhoods.
Similarly, the company aims to earn money in a manner that will provide social, economical and political upliftment to all the fellow citizens of the world. The statement provides the overall goal and a sense of direction to all the activities of the company.
KAHO is the brainchild of two entrepreneur brothers Mr. Subhag Jain and Mr. Srimant Jain. India is densely populated and has high solar insolation, an ideal combination for using solar power in India. According to a 2011 report by BRIDGE TO INDIA and GTM Research, India is facing a perfect storm of factors that will drive solar photovoltaic (PV) adoption at a "furious pace over the next five years and beyond". The falling prices of PV panels, has coincided with the growing cost of grid power in India. Government support and ample solar resources have also helped to increase solar adoption, but perhaps the biggest factor has been ‘Need’. Seeing this ‘Need’, KAHO was conceptualized on 3rd July, 2012.
KAHO pledges to create and deliver quality products and services that enlighten the lifestyles of rural India. Not only this, KAHO makes clean energy available to homeowners, businesses, schools, non-profits and government organizations at a lower cost than they pay for energy generated by burning fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas. KAHO will revolutionize the current Power ecosystem by giving customers a cleaner and affordable alternative.
