“The traditional lamp has been displaced from the village by the wind energy,” said a local Mun Bahadur Dangi.
The electricity is sufficient for household appliances such as mills and refrigerators in the day time and lighting bulbs at night, said Ram Bahadur Rawal, chairperson of Dangiwada Wind and Solar Energy Project.
A total of Rs 17 million has been spent for the project. The funds were collected from organizations working on alternative energy sector and from the lawmakers’ development fund, said Amar Raj Dangi, secretary of Dangiwada VDC.
The locals also donated for the pilot project which has proved to be a success in the village.
