LEH: This Losar brought a New Years Gift in the form of light for the villagers of the remote villages of Mukleb and Takthak, located in the Durbuk Block of Leh District, which was electrified for the first time by joint efforts of Global Himalayan Expedition Team and Councilor of Durbuk Block, Tashi Yakzee.
A local Councilor Tashi Yakzee said that the introduction of the concept of DC Solar Nano Grid to these villages by the team of Global Himalayan Expedition has been instrumental for the villagers to now enjoy 12 hours of indoor as well as outdoor lighting. Jaideep of GHE told that, a total of 70 Custom Designed DC LED lights were installed in these villages, with each home now lit up by at least 6-7 LED lights. All the households now plan to purchase DC LED HD TV for educational awareness and to be updated on world affairs.
According Dorjey Namgyail, a remote villager, both these village Hamlets comprising of nine households, were currently using solar home lighting systems and solar lanterns that were not adequate for lighting purpose and did not provide enough power to run TV and other appliances.
The DC Solar Nanogrid Technology is not only affordable but also risk free as it runs on DC power of 12 and 24V. This can be easily setup and can run appliances such as LED lights, LED street lights, USB mobile chargers and HD LED TV with dish connection. This technology can also be alternative for resorts and tourists camps that currently use Diesel Generators for lighting and charging purpose.
Jaideep later said that such technology not only brings fair price lighting in village but also pollution free.
