In this paper an attempt is made to discuss types of hydropower schemes and present a methodology on development & operation of Pico hydropower projects for running the generator and use of battery to light up the house are common to rural folks. The difficulty of getting the fuel and the cost of fuel are the main problems. Use of other alternative renewable energy such as solar photovoltaic modules, which is available for a number of hours per day, is very costly. It is required to find… Expand

In communities with no access to electricity, lighting is provided by kerosene lamps, torches or candles, all of which give poor quality light at relatively high cost. Lighting is usually the primaryExpand
