Kullu villagers revive windmill project

SHIMLA-Residents of Tungh village in the Banjar area generated electricity through a defunct watermill (gharat) when most of the areas in the district was plunged into complete darkness due to breakage of power lines because of heavy snow on December 13 last year.

Gopal Thakur, president of an NGO, Biodiversity Tourism and Community Advancement (BTCA), said after recent power breakdown, the project was revived with the help of villagers. He said the unit provided power supply to eight houses. ~ The Tribune/Photo Copyright: Jagjit Singh/Latent Image
