Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has increased the loadshedding schedule from the existing 80 hours a week to 84 hours a week. The new schedule will be applicable from February 9.
Under the latest loadshedding routine, there will be power cuts of exactly 12 hours everyday in a week. Earlier, load shedding routine with power cuts around 11 hours a day was brought into effect on January 2014.
With the peak winter days almost over, people were expect no further rise in loadshedding hours. But amid further depleting production, and ever increase power demand and consumption, NEA had to make a slight yet inevitable increase in the load shedding.
It has already been almost a decade of continuous and acute power shortage in Nepal. As of right now, there is a huge gap of more than 350 MW between power product and power consumption in Nepal. And even though the government has initiated some long term projects to quench the ever increasing thirst among consumers for more electricity, with a annual growth rate of 80 MW in demand, and only 40 MW in production, loadshedding seems to be an unavoidable problem in the years to come.
