Myanmar is a nasty word. I prefer Burma. Try wind generators.

I would get some pipes and concrete. Then make the pipes like a solar collector
is, dig a hole to fit it in, pour concrete in and paint the top black. Now you have heat Also, you might find some chrome spray paint there. Paint a umbrella's inside and turn it to the sun like a parabolic heater. Mabye put a solar panel in the middle. You can look at my A/c at https://www.instructables.com/id/Mini-Solar-Air-Conditioner/
for cooling too

i spent two weeks in the Congo, they had the same problem. the power went out sporadically and changed current and voltage frequently. have you considered pedal power? as in a bicycle hooked up to an alternator to generate electricity. if you used a human powered generator in conjunction with a UPS (uninterruptible power supply a device that supplies stored power when there is non otherwise) it would be a great combo. Granted you couldn't power your whole house like this (you'd need a generator) but you could power something important like a laptop.

Otherwise known as Burma - we hear bad news stories about your government. I'm thinking that oil-lamps or candles may be a cheap and easy option. Do you have waste oil or animal-fat which you might be able to use?
Otherwise you are looking at investing money in the things Nacho mentions, sensible if you can get them.

. If you only need power during the day a simple photovoltaic cell array and voltage regulator (or inverter, if you need AC), should work well and be relatively inexpensive. If you need power at night, add batteries as needed (but batteries aren't exactly green when they wear out). . Wind may be an option, but isn't very reliable unless you live in a place that is windy year-round.
