Installation of solar island systems in Mirge (Part 1)

In autumn 2017, a student of building physics had the idea to start an aid project within the framework of an excursion. Soon many others in the course of study were convinced of this idea, so that the planning was started. In April 2018 the final decision was made for the new Nepal project in Mirge, about 100 km east of the capital Kathmandu. Mirge was severely damaged by an earthquake in 2015. In addition, the power supply in the village is very unstable and the electricity fails for hours. Therefore, the installation of approx. 100 photovoltaic systems (20 Wp) to generate electricity for domestic lighting was planned.

Solar system installation in Nepal

The fun of solar technology was also conveyed by the solar plant installation in Nepal in February 2000. In cooperation with a Nepalese NGO, two groups of students installed photovoltaic systems in a rural training centre and a health station in the Himalayas, far away from high-tech planning and execution in familiar surroundings, but nevertheless instructive enough and especially welcomed with great joy by the villagers.
