Writer’s Note: Recently Kathmandu Post (Money – March 20, 2019) headlined the news “Upper Trishuli-3A Slated to Begin Generation in April 2019”. The commissioning of this 60 MW Trishuli-3A hydropower project is indeed very good news at a time when Nepal is resorting to heavy import from India. Another newspaper Republica also reported on March 28, 2019 “Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli secures 20 units of share of Trishuli IIIB (37 MW) hydropower project under the government’s People’s Hydropower Program.” As institutions have no memory and public memory is short, the writer would like the readers to go back to July 2013 Hydro Nepal journal wherein the 60 MW versus 90 MW battle over Upper Trishuli-3A was chronicled in detail. If the government had stuck to its 90 MW decision for Upper Trishuli-3A then the cascading Trishuli-3B would have also been upgraded to 55 MW. The writer thanks Hydro Nepal for kindly giving their permission to reproduce that article.
