    He’s right. That’s one windy area.

    Nepal is doing a lot with renewable energy at the village level. There’s lots of micro hydro, solar panels are in use, and there are some great wind resources.

    A few years ago I watched solar water heaters being built out of a shop that was about the size of an American clothes closet. The actual assembly was being done on the sidewalk in front of the small structure. They were using a homemade metal brake to form the outer box and soldering the seams with a blowtorch.

    What folks in areas like this really need is a better storage battery. I’m really hoping that zinc-air batteries perform as stated. That would make it possible for stand-alone systems to purchase batteries that cost less and last 20 years. It would make a huge difference for so many.
