MEGA, commercialising micro-hydro power in Malawi

This venture aims to bring locally generated electricity to rural off-grid Malawian communities through micro-hydro power generation. The first micro-hydro scheme on the Lichenya river on Mount Mulanje is already providing power to households and the clinic in Bondo community. Project partners Practical Action and the local conservation trust, MMCT, have recruited a GM for the new company, MEGA, and conducting feasibility studies for the next two schemes.
