Why we got in the game?
The Himalayan country of Nepal, which is located between the burgeoning wind energy powers, namely China & India, is in the midst of an energy crisis. Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA), a government-owned monopoly utility company, serves only about 15 percent of the country’s total population. And even for this small fraction of the population, reliable electricity access is less than 8 hours per day with rotational blackouts accounting for the remaining 16 hours or more. No wonder, the Government of Nepal declared a “national energy crisis” in December 2008.
