What is Energy Swaraj Clubs?

The Action Node of the Energy Swaraj Movement established to ignite public action in their locality.

We all are the users of energy and we all have contributed to climate change. In order to mitigate climate change, which has become a serious global problem, we all must act together. We need a public movement to encourage mass adoption of the Energy Swaraj - the energy generated and consumed locally.

For Energy Swaraj to become a public movement, people at large must start taking part in appropriately generating and consuming their own energy, without waiting for policies or subsidies.

Energy Swaraj Clubs are recognized to be very important action nodes of the Energy Swaraj Movement and they are established to ignite public action in their locality. The charity should begin from home and clubs are expected to show appropriate behaviour in terms of energy usage and adoption of renewable energy, as much as possible, before preaching to others.

Start your own Energy Swaraj Club

Technology alone cannot create a better world, people of integrity and consciousness of others and our environment can.
