Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) will extend load-shedding by one hour a day in the Central Region.
According to an official, NEA utility would cut power supply for 70 hours a week, or 10 hours a day. The NEA said the rainfall for the last few days would not make a bigger difference in power generation reports The Kathmandu Post.
The Central Region, the largest power consumer, is currently witnessing 56 hours a week of power cuts. In the Eastern Region, NEA cuts supply for 20 hours a week, and seven hours a week in the Western Region.
NEA, however, said the outage hours would not exceed 12 hours a day this winter. “Things are look positive so far. We are sure that the outage hours will not exceed 12 hours a day,” said NEA Managing Director Mukesh Kafle.
