In the rural areas of Lhasa Prefecture in 1998, 70% of the Tibetan families had no electricity. In 1998, BLSCP began a solar photovoltaic
(PV) electrification program
for these herders and farmers. In this photo, Bill Warnock, BLSCP member, delivers a solar PV system in September 2002
to the teacher and students at a rural primary school in Drongkar village, Damshung County, Lhasa Prefecture.
