(WTNH) — Students in Hartford are working to bring power to remote villages of Nepal.
Students have already built a wind and solar powered generator which now powers the small village of Saldang, now they are focusing on their new project: “Nepal 2.0.”
The project will ultimately improve the lives of hundreds people, thousands of miles away.
The students are putting the finishing touches on wind and solar panels, all of which they designed and built themselves.
The next challenge for students is to make all of the pieces small and stable enough to be taken by Yak to the remote villages in Nepal.
If you would like to donate to the project and help their cause, you can find a link to their website here.
News 8 also learned the solar and wind generator installed in Saldang survived the two powerful earthquakes that hit the country.
