An entrepreneur in Kavre, Central Nepal, is selling electricity to 26 households during night for lighting and to a furniture shop during day from 5 kW of electricity generated from water mill.  Government subsidies are being provided for water mills which seem more sustainable than for solar installations in remote areas. Along with 250 water mills in Kavre, around 10,000 water mills have been improved across Nepal in the past 12 years and provide electricity to 200 households. With availability of subsides, a water mill for grain grinding costs NRs.  40,000 while for electricity generation, it costs up to NRs 300,000.
