Background, financing, public-private partnerships, access to electricity, and. "Micro-hydro was introduced in Nepal before, but the difference UNDP made was to put community people at the center of the project so that they are.

Micro hydro is a type of hydroelectric power that typically produces from 5 kW to kW of electricity using the natural flow of water.

Installations below 5 kW are called pico hydro. These installations can provide power to an isolated home or small community, or are sometimes connected to electric power networks, particularly where net metering is offered. Micro-hydro is a useful way of providing power to houses, workshops or villages that need an independent supply.
