SEPS News: Micro-Hydro Power in Kaghan Valley, Pakistan

The SEPS project “Supporting creation and expansion of energy SMEs for sustaining access to energy and livelihood in mountainous areas of Kaghan, Pakistan“ has started with the beginning of spring season in the valley. Now, the melting snow opened the way to the site where there micro-hydro unit is supposed to be installed.

T-PAK, the local partner, has now started civil work at the site. It is located in a rugged mountain area and access remains difficult, which means that construction material can only be carried by people. A track is available from Naran to the site from where the material has to be transported by workers for about 100 meters.

The project aims to install a micro-hydro power unit with a capacity of 40KW to generate electricity in a touristic mountain area in Northern Pakistan which suffers from frequent blackouts of the national grid.
