Pyuthan, Dec. 18: At a time when electricity users across the country are bearing the brunt of increasing hours of power outage, it has not affected villagers of Syauliban, Pyuthan.

They neither need load-shedding schedule nor have burden to pay exorbitant electricity tariff. Locals of the most distant village of the district, Syaulibang, have lit up their areas after generating electricity from a gorge nearby village.

Locals have set it a model village being successful to generate power in the most disadvantaged area using locally available resources. The village is 17 miles away from Pyuthan district headquarters, Khalanga.

The District Development Committee Energy and Environment unit and Alternative Energy Promotion Centre have provided assistance for three projects to generate 42-KW of electricity.

The day-to-day life here has been very easier and comfortable with the generation of power at local level, said villagers.

The village has 636 households with total 1,070 populations. RSS
