NEA reduces loadshedding by an hour daily


    Mar 13, 2016- Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has slashed loadshedding by an hour a day, effective from Monday. After the latest revision coming into effect, the load-shedding will decrease to 84 hours a week from existing 91 hours.

    Individual household consumers will have to face power outage of 12 hours a day. Mukesh Kafle, managing director of NEA, said that the decision to reduce power-cut was the impact of 80 mega watt of electricity imported from India through Nepal-India Dhalkebar-Muzaffarpur transmission line.

    NEA informed that the power cut will keep on decreasing from now onwards. “After 10 days, we will again review the loadshedding hours and, if possible, we will again decrease the power-cut hours,” added Kafle.
