Load-shedding down to six hours per day

KATHMANDU, APR 24: Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) is reducing load-shedding to around six hours per day beginning Friday from the existing eight hours.

In the same period last year, daily power outage stood at around 12 hours. “We were able to reduce the load-shedding hours due to leakage control, efficient load management, and optimisation and collection of greater amount of water at reservoir-based Kulekhani hydro project,” NEA Managing Director Mukesh Raj Kafle said.
