ECCDI had been successful in seeking funds to provide electricity to some villages. The electricity was supplied by using solar power, rice-husk gasifier and establishing a connection to the national grid. Three village-electrification projects had been implemented by ECCDI in Mandalay, Yangon and Bago regions.
Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany funded the project “Village Electrification by Rice-husk Gasifier” in 2010-2011. The project was implemented in Ywahtaunggon village, Thegon Township, Pay District. The gasifier using rice husk provided electricity to 90 houses in the village. The pictures above show the gasifier (left) and the girls working in the light provided by the gasifier (right).
