Power line at 2000 m

Family friendly, ideal landscape, easy to reach – the attributes of the alpine region NARA, located at 1500 to 2100 meters above sea level in the Swiss Blenio-Valley, in the southern part of the Alps. In 2003, a group of people created the non-profit association “Amici del Nara” (Friends of Nara) in order to maintain and operate the technical infrastructure of the Nara region. Every year, over 600 members perform thousands of hours of voluntary work maintaining and operating chair lifts, ski lifts, and the mountain restaurant, preparing slopes, hiking and biking trails.
A 200 KW Diesel Generator was used until recently to generate the electricity to operate the installations at the upper section of the area – an anachronism in this region with its beautifully renovated “Rustici” (alpine huts) and well-kept alpine hayfields.
This has changed in summer 2010: a 2.1 km long earth-laid power line connects the installations with the public grid at the lower part of the valley, in 2016 we continuity to connect Alpe Pain Laghetto.

Thank you very much for the support.
