A must have document in every Nepali household today is a load shedding schedule. Everyone must have been curious regarding when the load shedding hours are going to reduce. A mutual thing that every Nepali shares is their life story related to the load shedding schedule. As for now, HSEB students must be adjusting their sleep hours at night according to the time when the light goes off. Or the IPL excitement must be driving many of its viewers to the restaurants. These are two of many examples that all of us share these days. The good news is that the hours relating our stories have been reduced slightly. The load shedding hours have been reduced by 2 hours, from 12 hours to 10 hours daily. The load shedding was 84 hours in a week which will be decreased to 70 hours a week.
As a SMS service provider, Sparrow SMS has provided you with a service that enables you to get your load shedding schedule easily on your mobile device.
You can type G<group-number> and send SMS to 35001 to get the load shedding schedule on your phone. For example, if your group number is 4, type G4 and SMS to 35001.
The load shedding increment or decrement is predictable for every Nepali. The study of the load shedding trend in 2070 shows that the highest load shedding hours have occurred during Magh to Chaitra.
As per the recent study conducted by the team of Institute of Engineering,Tribhuwan University Nepal, led by Prof. Narendra Man Shakya, Nepal has a total potential to generate 53,000 megawatts of hydropower. This study was based on using Geographic Information System (GIS). If load shedding problems were observed and untied by Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA), the life in Nepal would be unimaginably changed. The business houses would be standing in a remarkable position than they are standing now. The expense for every household to set up extra energy power source would be checked. It would be like removing the huge log off the highway.
Psychologically, it would benefit most of the citizens as they could do their regular life chores without considering the load shedding hours. We can relate the reasons to why most people are usually frustrated due to load shedding. However, most of Nepali people have found this problem as an opportunity to take it in another direction. There are numerous trolls posted on facebook and twitter where people find a way to cope with the situation by having a laugh about it. The developers have captivated it as an idea to create various apps which has persuaded the development in people. And in the most general scenario, the reliance on technology has been minimized for social interactions that have pushed people to interact more often than usual.
Nepal government should have a policy to implement as many hydropower projects as possible with domestic investment in order to check this ravaging electricity crisis.
