Let There Be Light

Thanks to an Air Force-led provincial reconstruction team and local Afghans in Mehtar Lam province east of the Afghanistan capital of Kabul, area residents near Rayn now have access to a steady supply of electricity. The PRT led construction for a new micro-hydroelectric plant, which produces 25 kilowatts of power and supplies electricity to about 300 homes. The commander of the Mehtar Lam PRT, Lt. Col. Brad Bredenkamp, attributed the successful completion of the plant to the combined efforts of local Afghanis, the local government, and the airmen.
