Khurukushal Khan Pilot Scheme for Emergency Lighting

INTRODUCTION: The scheme which covers 54 households of this settlement, aims at motivating people to help themselves in line with the spirit advocated by the Imam of the time as given in the learning material for “Civil Society”, and also repeated through the WEBCAST on 11th July 2017. It is hoped that all VO/WO will emulate the model and ultimately agree to form "Hunza Power Supply Company" as a precursor to a vibrant economy for Hunza.
This system will provide lighting to all the participants for at least 3 to four hours each day in the absence of public supply system and be sustainable when each of the users agrees to pay the expenses he has been presently incurring on - gas lamps/mumbati/ emergency lights etc. - through a monthly bill to the treasurer of the WO.
As the system is upgraded through SELF HELP, the beneficiaries will use this system towards KNOWLEDGE SOCIETY as well TELEMEDICINE and economic transformation.
The capital for this scheme has been raised through conscientious investors. The invested amount is in the form of items as listed below and not money and this cost is likely to be refunded to the investor in two years with the feeling of gratitude from the beneficiaries as the associated profit alternately it will be the share if "Hunza Power Supply Company" becomes a reality during this period and the investors opts to buy the shares of this company.
The system will be operated by the Women Organisation which functions under the patronage of Baltit Rural Support Organization (BRSO). The decision in this regard has been approved vide ref no. VO-12/04/013. The present executive body consists of:
Chairperson:            Mrs Naseem Bano
Vice Chairperson:    Mrs Naik Parwar
Treasurer:                Mrs Abida
Secretary:                Mrs Zadi W/O Irshad (Sakhi Madad)
54 houses are covered by six distributed systems. One system has been commissioned on 26th June 2013 and the components of the distributed system consists of:
1. Battery 165-AH                                            Rs. 10,000.00
2. Inverter 1000-VA                                         Rs. 2,400.00
3. 3*Solar Panels 100-W or 2*150W Panels Rs. 10,000.00 each (two of these are on loan from Baltit Fort.
4. Battery Charger                                             Rs. 1,100.00 (20A Charger costs around Rs. 3,000)
6. Battery Charge controller 15A                        Rs. 3,000.00
7. Wiring/Labour Charges:                                  Rs. 6,285.00 (Mr. Mehrban)
Total Initial Cost:                                    [Paid by Brig Hisamullah Beg SI(M) as investment for the scheme.]
Operator (Voluntary Service):                 Mr. Javed karim
Starting date (pilot system):                     26th June 2013.

The scheme is scheduled for full commissioning on 28th September 2013.

Each system has been installed in the house of a voluntary operator who keeps a simple record of the operation of the system in his charge. His record forms the basis of monthly bills as well as any repair or maintenance requirements. This record has a more important function of generating a data base for possible improvements in replicated systems elsewhere.

BUSINESS PLAN: scanned copy of the handwritten plan is as under:

NOTE: Recurring Premature battery failures have dented the credibility of the system with the users. Since the system installed at my home is working satisfactorily since 1998, I have reached the conclusion that care and maintenance needs to be done according to following instructions:
