DARBANG, Nepal — The government of Nepal, with support and assistance from the World Bank (WB), is bringing electricity to some of the nation’s most rural areas. In an effort to make the country more self-sufficient and environmentally friendly, the government is installing micro-hydro plants to secure a sustainable and renewable energy source for communities.
The micro-hydro plant initiative has been largely successful in bringing clean, renewable energy to remote parts of Nepal. The government’s work to ensure that the plants are community based efforts makes the investment practical and sustainable. With plans to continue constructing plants, Nepal hopes to secure a renewable energy source that will power the nation into the future.
