Kimling Village working towards a more sustainable future

Installing solar panels and wind turbines is an excellent way to provide electricity to remote areas where power infrastructure may be difficult or impossible to install. This is especially important in places like Upper Mustang, where access to electricity is limited. By using renewable energy sources like solar and wind, the Kimling village can reduce its dependence on fossil fuels and help mitigate the effects of climate change. In addition, having access to electricity can have numerous benefits for the villagers including improvement in their quality of lives and enabling them to access modern technology and communication tools.
