Even today, hundreds of homes in remote Nepal do not have access to electricity. Due to the geographically difficult terrains of these remote areas, the National Grid is not readily accessible. Villagers barely have one bulb in their houses that sometimes experiences black outs during peak hours. With limited options, lanterns and candles become the primary sources of light. This lack of electricity interferes routine activities and hinders the use of basic electronic necessities such as refrigerators, radios, and chargers.
With solar minigrid, the previously disconnected communities get access to reliable and sustainable power, overcoming the limitations imposed by their geographical locations. Villagers can then enjoy the benefits of basic electronic necessities and get involved in income-generating opportunities. Solar minigrids bring light and smiles to remote villages by empowering communities, improving education and health services and enabling small businesses to thrive. In 2014, we installed Nepal’s first Minigrid, a robust 70KW powerhouse located in Khotang. Since then, we have been illuminating numerous off-grid areas across the country, positively impacting the lives of numerous families.
A thorough energy assessment and demand collection of the area is conducted with community engagement.
Experienced engineers customize a design for the solar system at the off-grid area to build a powerhouse for the village.
Installation team builds a power infrastructure ensuring all components are functioning effectively according to the established standards.
With lights on, villagers gain access to a reliable and sustainable power, and engage in income-generating activities.
Solar power has brought light to our once-dark village of Sorukot.Improving our lives. Our children can study at night, businesses run smoothly, and mobile phones can be charged. With access to reliable electricity, we are hopeful that our village will thrive.
