Himalaya Currents Inc.  501C3 Private Foundation

Himalaya Currents Inc. has been established to support sustainable energy and water projects in remote Himalayan villages.  We currently have several projects on going which involve water/irrigation utilizing our "Ascension pump" technology and power generation projects using hydro kinetic energy from streams and wind sources.  We cooperate with partners like the World Wildlife Fund, Freunde of Nepal, Schulverein Lo-Manthang, Dolpo Tulku Charitable Foundation, Tapriza Foundation and One Heart World-Wide to bring green technology solutions to this fragile environment.

Part of our team with our dear friend Thinley from Saldang 
(Fall 2014 while doing site surveys in Karang and Namdo)

Due to the Earthquake our departure for KTM is postponed to May 8th.  We must complete the Ringmo repairs before the water rises and yarsha gumba season starts.  So we have no choice. Still a little unclear how our other energy projects have withstood the events, Status of Karang, Saldang and Namdo not known.  
  • Our friends from Myanmar have asked us to support an In-stream turbine in Nagaland Upper Irrawaddy river in Myanmar.  Fund raising efforts are in full swing now!
  • Our team will go to Dolpa in May for the Ringmo repairs, and refurbish the Pugmo and Chunawar solar units and grinding mills
    Pugmo Prayer Wheel Restoration Project Completes new building construction, mantras will be installed this spring!
  • Saldang Wind/Solar Hybrid unit installed for the Shelri Drukdra Lower Middle School. See this link to view our suppliers news release for the equipment we installed. http:/www.prweb.com/release/2013/11/prweb11303481.htm.  Fall 2014 Unit survives winter, running well.
  • Birth Center in Saldang is wired with power from Saldang School Turbine to run lights and power medical equipment.!
  • Namdo and Karang Schools are surveyed for solar/wind power projects for 2015.  Funding starts with CBIA and AGET.
  • Ringmo In-stream turbine experiences weld failure after running for 4.5 months.  We have determined the root cause of the failure and repairs are being made to recommission the unit in May of 2015.  It will be BETTER than new
