Renewable Energy Project: Solar Power for Nepal

[The Rising Nepal] It is indeed an irony that many areas in Nepal, a country with the second largest hydro electricity potential in the world, are deprived of electricity. Since access to dependable supply of electricity is a pre-requisite for development to ameliorate the lot of the people, most of whom are impoverished, in the many remote rural areas it is essential to provide them with electricity. Thus, the news that the Renewable Energy Project (REP) of the European Union is to assist in providing electricity to 22 hill districts in the remote regions has to be welcomed.
