SunFarmer has signed a long-term agreement to install over 100 kW of solar at Bayalpata Hospital in Achham, Nepal. This will be one of the 5 largest solar energy systems in all of Nepal. We installed the rst 43 kW of solar panels, and will install the remainder in 2017-2018!
This year, we installed a solar-powered water heating system (pictured), which will heat 3,300 liters of water each day for both personal and medical use.
Kirtipur Hospital is an award-winning hospital in Kirtipur, Nepal that specializes in treating cleft and burn injuries. The chief doctor, Dr. Shankar Man Rai, helps mentor and train young doctors, and has personally completed more than 12,000 free surgeries for impoverished children in Nepal. However, Kirtipur Hospital has long faced 12-15 hours per day without any electricity. In October 2016, SunFarmer installed a 20 kW solar energy system to power crucial medical equipment.
Lungra Health Clinic
Lungra Health Clinic was the first official SunFarmer solar installation. Travel from Lungra to the regional Bayalpata Hospital requires a 2 hour off-road drive or a 4 hour walk (no public transportation available).
We held a meeting with 35 community members and formed a 5-person "Solar Task Force Committee" to manage the maintenance of the solar installation.
