|Tribal communities based in reserve forest areas are denied from basic amenities such as electricity, transport and medication for safeguarding the endangered species and to avoid higher risks of forest fire.To benefit them with satisfactory power supply system, an efficient, safe, and environmental friendly technique must be employed. This paper addresses the approach for deploying an AC solar photo-voltaic micro grid and the role of engineering technology for its sustainability in Mendil, a village based in reserve forest area of Karnataka, India. We examine the location, plan for suitable electrification method and implement a 2kW micro-grid system for operational studies. The implemented system represents a model for practitioners involved in the behavioral analysis of solar photo-voltaic micro-grids in adverse geographical and climatic conditions
