The team has electrified 25 villages impacting the lives of over 15,000 people, and plans to electrify 40 more villages in 2017. He has also been instrumental in providing experiential-based digital education to the students of the Ladakh region by setting up Himalayan Innovation Centers with GHE, which have won the Design for Change Award two years in a row for sustainability projects. He also set the world record for the first electric bike to reach the highest motorable road in the world in September 2015. National Geographic and NDTV have each made a documentary on GHE and its initiative to bring light to the remotest communities of the world.
