With the increase in power generation due to the arrival of monsoon, Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) on Sunday slashed the power outage, known as load-shedding, to 10 hours a week effective from tomorrow.
NEA informed that the power cuts will be for six days a week and will follow the same earlier routine.
This means that consumers will have to bear less than 2 hours of power cuts a day.
Earlier, the power cut was for 14 hours a week.
Increase in water levels in the NEA reservoirs due to heavy rainfall including Kulekhani-1 and II hydropower projects coming in operation contributed to the cut down in load-shedding hours, NEA said. nepalnews.com
