Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has reduced the leakage of electricity in the system to 14.35 percent in the first four months of the current Fiscal Year (FY) 2022.

NEA has managed to reduce the leakage of the system from 17.18 percent in the last fiscal year by 2.83 percentage points to 14.35 percent in the last four months of the current fiscal year through the regular campaigns for power supply and control of technical and non-technical leakages.

Of the leakage in the system till November, 9.24 percent is towards distribution and the rest is towards transmission and production. As of November last year, the leakage towards distribution was 12.01 percent. Compared to the four months of last year, the leakage towards distribution this year is 2.77 percentage points less.

NEA has set a target of reducing electricity leakage to 15.5 percent in the current fiscal year. NEA Executive Director Kulman Ghising said that the target would be achieved in the remaining period of the current fiscal year as the leakage was less than the target in the first four months.

NEA had reduced the leakage of electricity from 25.78 percent in FY 2016 to 15.25 percent in FY 2020. However, in FY 2021, the leakage had increased by 1.91 percentage points and reached 17.18 percent.
