Minister for Energy Radha Gyawali has said that the load shedding hours would be reduced by two hours from 15 March.
She made the statement addressing an interaction organised after inspecting the Panauti Hydropower Project at Khosi, Kavre, on Wednesday.
Stating that work on only three kilometers of a transmission line is to be completed, the Energy Minister said that the completion of this work would have a positive impact on reducing load shedding hours.
Minister Gyawali inspected the project and acquired information about it. The project with 2,400 kilowatt capacity is now generating 500 kilowatts electricity.
