After a long winter the Karang, Namdo and Saldang power systems continue to run wonderfuly (see video) Nepal 3.0 project with the students from the Academy of Engineering and Green Technology of Hartford kick off new project in January. Installation of upgraded power system for Tenje Primary School scheduled for May 2017
Our return from the Schaller / Mathiessen expidition was truly a majestic time for our team. Returning back to Dolpa for GS some 40 plus years later was amazing. During the trip we did repair the Ringmo Turbine and installed small solar power units for the Lama at Shey Gompa, and the Komas Primary School. The unfortunate news is that the snow from last winter was very little and the water levels are very low. Power output from the Ringmo and Pugmo power units are down. We plan to leave in May to upgrade the existing power unit at the Shree Siddarth Kula Primary School in Tinje and add a wind turbine at the Komas school.
