KABUL, Afghanistan, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- Afghanistan is scheduled to unveil its first wind farm on Nov. 10.
The project was a cooperative effort on the part of the International Security Assistance Force's Panjsher Provincial Reconstruction Team and the local workforce in the Panjsher province, Asia Pulse Data Source reported.
There was also a New Zealand-based contractor brought in to help ISAF's engineers build the $977,000 hybrid power generation and distribution system. The new system will be able to provide wind power as well as running water, hot water and a septic system for a new government facility.
ISAF Chief Engineer Jason Aftanas said the project will prove to be a good feasibility study for larger projects in Afghanistan.
