Tashi's Turbine

About This Episode


Set in the grasslands of the Himalayan Mountains, Tashi’s Turbine is an uplifting tale of a small village’s attempt to harness renewable, sustainable energy -- the power of the wind.

Friends Tashi and Jeevan journey from Kathmandu to Namdok with hopes of building a stronger Nepal, one wind turbine at a time. Their first site is a remote village that previously relied exclusively on flickering candlelight. As Tashi and Jeevan work with the villagers, the elements and landscape bring unforeseen difficulties for installing a turbine -- increasing the struggle to realize the community’s vision of power created by windy nights.
