Our project focused on determining the feasibility of implementing a micro-hydroelectric system as a reliable source of electricity to the remote Karen village of Kre Khi, in northwest Thailand. The intended use of the electricity is to improve the education within the village. While in Kre Khi, we conducted fieldwork which involved determining the attitudes of villagers towards electricity, surveying a nearby stream, and calculating the potential power output in order to determine what educational tools could be used.
