Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has announced a new change in load shedding schedules to be effective from 2072-08-18. The power cut period is estimated to be around 65 hours per week. The last load shedding schedule was revised on April 24 but it was not effective since Nepal suffered a major earthquake on April 25 leading to a loss of large number of people and property.
With the peak winter days, this news maybe very disappointing for all Nepalese since we are also suffering with fuel crisis due to blockade on the border of Nepal. People have resorted to electric heaters and induction stoves as a replacement to fuel for their day-to-day activities. In such condition, load shedding will toughen our lives more. The demand and production gap of electricity in Nepal is estimated to be around more than 300 MWs. Even after initiating different projects in this sector, there has not been a noticeable difference.
Bearing this in mind, Sparrow provides an easier approach to check load shedding schedules easily using SMS or App.
Users can 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 to get the latest loadshedding schedule on their cell phones.
