Load-shedding hrs increased; consumers may face up to 19 hrs of daily powercuts this winter
Citing the same old reason - ‘reduction of water level and flow in the rivers’ with the onset of winter - Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has again increased the load-shedding hours from Wednesday.
The state-monopoly on supply of electricity has hiked the load-shedding hours by 10 more hours to make it 56 hours a week from the existing 46 hours from today. With the new load-shedding schedule coming into effect, consumers will now have to face 6 to 7 hours of power cuts every day.
Worse, NEA says that consumers may have to face up to 19 hours of daily power cuts this winter.
Similarly, the increase in demand of power during winter season is also the reason behind increased load-shedding, according to NEA. nepalnews.com
