Village Benefits From Wind-Solar Power System

Ramro Khabar.
Villagers of Dhaubadi in Nawalparasi are set to benefit from Asian Development Bank’s newest pilot project that is happening for the first time in Nepal which is the installation of the mini wind-solar hybrid power system. Under the system there are two sets of 5 kW wind turbines complemented by a 2 kW peak solar photo-voltaic panel to meet the village’s daily demand of 43.6 kW hours.

The positive outcome for the villagers mean that they can spend less time in their search for firewood and the reduction in deforestation in the area. This sure is an example of the foreign aid money being used and bringing the change that is expected. Let’s hope ADB’s project reaches many more rural villages in the days to come.
