Why Nepal faces increasing loadshedding hours? [infographics]

with 0 Comment
Nepal, despite being the second richest country in natural water resources, faces high hours of load shedding every day. Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has announced yet another increase in power cuts to up to 12 hours a day from February 9, 2014.

Regardless of various efforts from the Government's side to upscale power production time and again, they are yet to minimize the power cuts, let alone the days of gaining power surplus. The major setback has been the ever increasing Power Demand VS the Power Production rate.

In accordance with the annual report of Nepal Electricity Authority 2012/13, Nepal produces about 662 MW and imports 102.5 MW of electricity, total of 764 MW a year. Consumers on the other hand demand about 332 MW more.  The entire deficit between production and demand can be viewed in the infographics below. 

For the latest load-shedding schedules on your mobile Type G and then send it to 35001 

For example, if your group number is 7, type G7 and then send it to 35001

New Loadshedding Schedule increased to 12 hours a day from February 2014

with 0 Comment
Get the latest load-shedding schedules on your mobile
Simply type G<Group No.> and then send it to 35001
For example, if your group number is 5, type G5 and then send it to 35001

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. That being said, you do not need to hassle around for each new loadshedding schedule, for you can get it on your mobile using SparrowSMS. Simply type G<Group No.> and then send it to 35001. For example, if your group no. is 5, type G5 and then send it to 35001. You will immediately get a complete loadshedding table of your group on your mobile.
