This chapter centres around a discussion of the topic of domestic rural solar photovoltaics (PV) in India, its history, development and current status, including state-led policies governing rural solar electrification and macro-economic issues of energy production. Consideration is given to the commonplace issues associated with the electrification of rural areas using solar PV, its challenges and contests, yet also its rewards and returns. Furthermore, the chapter explores how material aspects of technology and energy have become embedded within notions of development, modernity, enlightenment and the formation of the state.
