Murali Gaun of Guthichaur Rural Municipality-2 in Jumla district has started producing electricity through solar energy.

Chairperson of the RM, Hari Bahadur Bhandari shared that around 2,000 households will be brought under the ambit of electricity with this electricity.

The ward was shrouded by darkness in lack of easy access to electricity.

Though the affluent people had access to electricity through solar panel installed at their houses, those economically disadvantaged had been using oil-fed lamps.

Bhandari further said that the local government was effortful to fulfill the objectives that each household in the locality shall have electricity access and taps. Also, road network shall be expanded all over.

The local government has allocated a total of Rs 35.6 million for solar energy. The local tourism is also expected to benefit from the electricity access in Guthichaur RM which has 53 home-stay in operation.
