Distribution of solar lights in remote village of Chitwan

By Prachet Shrestha and Ashmita Rai | Team Leader and Officer

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) lamps were distributed to each of the 20 members of Shree Cheuri Division Women Group in a remote village of Kalikhola, Rapti Municipality-13, Chitwan in central Nepal, where there is no access to electricity and which lies in a very difficult geographical terrain (very hilly area). They were also provided orientation on renewable energy; solar energy, how to properly use the solar lamp, and its simple maintenance.

 

Ms. Praja, president of Shree Cheuri Division Women Group shared, “the support of clean and portable lamps allows children to do their homework after dusk and provides residents with a cleaner source of lighting for their homes. Solar PV lamps have now replaced kerosene lamps significantly reducing health hazards such as burns and toxic fume inhalation. We are very thankful for the support.” 

 

ECCA has been promoting the use of affordable and much more sustainable solar lights, to replace kerosene lights that are used in most houses where electricity is not available.

We are also thankful for your support.
