This paper presents a methodology for financial analysis that compares costs and benefits of rural electrification by grid expansion with isolated micro hydro schemes. Financial analysis of three existing isolated micro hydro schemes in different parts of Nepal are compared against the alternative option of grid expansion. Case study results are tabulated and discussed.
