PEEDA in collaboration with Energy, Environment, Research and Development Center (EERDC) implemented this project, funded by Siemenpuu Foundation, Finland. The project aimed to electrify 45 households in Kimling village, and provide operation and maintenance training to the local technicians. Besides that, the project also focused on developing a Municipal Energy Plan of Lomanthang Rural Municipality, which would strengthen the capacity of local government authorities for appropriate energy planning and budget allocation on renewable energy.
The anticipated outcomes from the project include:
• Improved access to modern energy services through the installation of standalone solar-wind hybrid system
• Enhanced capacity of local community to smoothly operate and maintain the installed energy system
• Strengthened capacity of local stakeholders to plan and implement local energy projects

Project Duration: July 2021 to June 2022
