Everyone wants Golen Electricity: What happened to Micro hydels?
Chitral: With the the 107 MW Golen hydel power station going into operation, every one all over Chitral from Yarkhun to Laspur to Terich to Arandu is head over heals to get power connection from this source.? One wonders whatsoever happened to the scores of micro hydel projects put up by NGOs in remote parts of Chitral? Are these micro power plants insufficient or inefficient? If not why are people in areas with these micro plants asking for connection to the main power station.? A study needs to be conducted as to whether on what the NGOs are spending money is really worth the money? .. CN report, 15 Feb 2018
