#RETelling Volume 2.0: The Adventure Continues

With a rich culture, ancient heritage buildings and majestic sceneries, India is one of the world’s most enchanting destinations. From bustling towns to historic sites to people from vibrant cultural backgrounds, it was time once again to embark on our next #REtelling journey to discover new stories. This time, we called upon two passionate story-tellers, Samar Singh Virdi and George Koruth, to undertake the unique and exciting #REtelling journey.

We Are But Stories Waiting To Be Told
Discoveries do not only belong in the fields of science but also in the daily observations that we see and feel. When the two are combined we get a great combination that can be best explained through the popular phrase, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. With this journey, our end goal was to explore and discover stories in renewable energy sites and tell them as they are – raw and without a filter. Literally! Here are a few stories of what we mean. You may agree or disagree to agree but some of the images captured by our story-tellers speak volumes about the importance of renewable energies in our lives. Have a look!



To Make Do With What We Have

The world is constantly changing and with that, our planet is facing one of the greatest threats today – climate change! To make a difference, it is important that we utilize the available resources available efficiently and make the most of them. Especially to ensure that our future generations can enjoy a wonderful and habitable life at the one place that is home to us all – the Earth.
One frame at a time, our storytellers were able to capture some special moments as they explored our renewable energy sites and its surrounding vicinity in Karnataka.

Round the clock
Most of the time, barring sunny afternoons, our eyes fix onto the warm colors of the rising or setting sun and we’re transported to an enchanted world. But with that also comes the intriguing process and the basis through which energy converts to power for solar energy.
Another popular source of renewable energy are wind turbines. Immune to time, wind turbines constantly rotate to produce green power.

Stories To Make The World A Better Place
Our storytellers did a wonderful job in capturing moments and most of all the people around the sites. There are a lot of things to be considered when working at a solar or wind energy site that one might conveniently forget. Safety being the most important aspect to be considered, all of the workers need to take the correct precautions and be responsible as they carry out their tasks.

The Best Is Yet To Come
Hopefully, these stories help in paving the way for more people making the switch towards a greener way of living!
But that not where our story-telling journey ends. We are excited to announce that this year, the stories are limited to the ones presented here but also to yours. If you’re reading this and is inspired to share your story on sustainable living.

We have heard this old saying that “grass is always greener on the other side”. Well, no, it isn’t. As obvious as it sounds, it is greener where we water it. While we look for peace and a rare connection with nature in popular travel destinations, Madhya Pradesh is a place that has already found a route to pure serenity, and its beauty lies undiscovered!

Hero Future Energies collaborated with 2 photography enthusiasts, Samar Singh Virdi & Prashanth Vishwanathan who traveled to Dhar and Alote in Madhya Pradesh to witness the great green outdoors that people of Madhya Pradesh are blessed to access.

#REtelling: The Green Journey

#REtelling was a green journey undertaken by two chosen storytellers to capture the beauty of renewable sites in Madhya Pradesh. Prashanth Vishwanathan and Samar Singh Virdi took on the enterprise with much excitement to travel across the countryside to visit Hero Future Energies’ solar and wind energy site at Alote and Dhar in Madhya Pradesh, respectively.

Telling a story is personal and our penchant to add our very own perspective, more than anything, is an effort to make things fresh and different. #REtelling is an effort to bring an important subject to the light at this day and age i.e. to understand the consequences of a very serious change – climate change and its various effects. So the #REtelling story-tellers went on an expedition to discover what it meant to embrace nature by exploring the power of renewable sources in our life.

Here are some of the beautiful stories narrated with beautiful moments they seized through their lenses:

Chapter 1 – The Introduction

Prashanth and Samar were enthralled by the size of the renewable sites and quickly they were absorbed to learn. They interacted with the specialists around the sites to find out how a solar panel functioned or why a wind turbine needed to be constantly monitored! And more importantly, to learn how a solar panel or windmill was built and how it harnesses the power of the sun and air, respectively, to generate electricity.


As the sun sets for the day then arises the beauty of the solar site at Alote, Madhya Pradesh

Area: 200 acres and solar panels spread across in 153 acres

Number of Panels: 1,11,784

Titbit: 1400 solar panels were cleaned daily!

Wind site at Dhar, Madhya Pradesh

Area: 50 Kms


Number of wind turbines: 53


Titbit: One wind turbine was about 120 meter tall which is as many as 55 Great Khalis standing on top of each other!

Chapter 2 – The Stories

India has many hidden beauties. Madhya Pradesh is one such state that will leave you gasping with great people and alluring sceneries. But as the saying goes, ‘beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder’, we were extremely fortunate to have these talented storytellers who did exactly that to capture amazing life around the renewable sites.
