Electricity is one of the important achievements of scientific creation. It is used for lighting the bulbs, heating the rooms, ironing etc. Big industries and factories are operated through it. It has made a great change in transportation sectors like trolley bus, electronic train, and cable cars.
Nepal has no known major oil, gas, or coal reserves, and its position in the Himalayas makes it hard to reach, with remote and extremely remote communities. Consequently, most Nepali citizens have historically met their energy needs with biomass, human labor, imported kerosene, and/or traditional water powered vertical axis mills, to this day.
This situation has led some experts to call the country’s energy portfolio “medieval” in the fuels it uses and “precarious” in the load shedding that occurs throughout Kathmandu, due to an imbalance between electricity supply and demand. Nepal, however, has all it needs to escape these problems. Large markets for improved cook stoves, biogas digesters, and solar lanterns exist throughout the country.
These efforts could be supplemented with attempts to strengthen energy efficiency planning, with significant potential for transmission upgrades and retrofits and more efficient lighting practices.
Our school is one of the thousands in Nepal which are affected by this problem. We installed one solar panel which was donated by one of our volunteers that time but still have no Hot Water System unfortunately which makes winters so hard to the students. To fix this problem we need your generous help. Please contact us if you are able to cover below cost:
A two panel 300-liter water heater costs well above Rs100,000 (US$ 1000) While a three-panel heater of the same capacity is Rs200,000 (US$ 2000) They're also available in 125 liters and 440 liters capacities.
Please contact us if you are ready to make us warm by donation for the hot water system.
