About Doorastha

Doorastha Analytics Pvt. Ltd. Was formally founded in May 2017, but a couple of promoters were working for a couple of years before that in developing and prototyping a solution for measurement and monitoring of solar micro-grids to resolve some serious problems that challenged the sustainability of these grids. We have got a lot of support and encouragement from several quarters, and co-incubated at reputed incubators.

Our Story.

With long experience in the industry, four of us thought it was time to use our experience, capabilities, network and knowledge to contribute to the society. Pooling collective experience in diverse areas – clean-tech, financial inclusion, and industry body representations, we believed there was need and opportunity in the rural hinterland of the country. Lack of energy access (quantity as well as quality) severely limited enterprise growth. On top of that energy theft, collection challenge (mechanical and cultural), sub-optimal utilization of assets and absence of sustainable business models were challenges that needed a solution.

We conceived an idea. Named it iLUMY. Applied to Electropreneur Park with our innovation. We were selected for incubation at Electropreneur Park at Delhi University South Campus in May 2017. Our idea was awarded the Best Startup Idea of 2017 by the eminent panel. We formed DOORASTHA ANALYTICS PVT LTD to take the iLUMY solution to market.

How we touch the lives of people?

Our solution helps enhance livelihoods, provide employment through access to clean energy to rural enterprises. The end consumers benefit through increased revenue, or a cut-down of losses..

Some of our customers have their stories to tell:

Restaurant owner who operates from a roadside dhaba setup, uses DC LED bulbs and DC Fan to run his chulha (oven) enabling faster turnaround times for his customers. More business, more revenue.

Snack shop operates 24x7 or on demand. Our power is available to him always. No downtime.

Village Saloon owner uses the light and fan as a competitive tool to attract more customers, hence higher revenues.

Tailor uses our power to reduce dependency on un-reliable grid power. On time delivery increases business. “One extra order complete in a month is enough to pay for our full months service!”

Vegetable Seller by the roadside uses our services to extend his business hours so as to exhaust his stock of vegetables. This prevents left-overs which are not sellable, hence increasing income.

Our Vision

Our Vision is to become the largest player in the SMART ANALYTICS space in the Off-Grid Distributed Energy Systems.
