A concept paper, along with cost estimations, is presented proposing the development of very small sized solar PV grids, which we have termed nano-grids. These grids allow the incorporation of developmental activities such as irrigation, along with household usage of electricity. It is argued that the developmental activity should be chosen in such a way that it matches with the seasonal variation in insolation and load demand to keep the energy cost to a minimum.
