11 hrs daily power cuts in offing


KATHMANDU, Aug 24 - The country will face up to 11 hours of daily power cuts in the coming dry season (November-April), according to Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA). The power cuts will be inevitable owing to a peak time power deficit of as much as 354 megawatts (MW).

"The worst power cuts of 11 hours per day will happen in February-March 2008," said Sher Singh Bhat, chief of NEA's Load Dispatching Center (LDC). LDC is NEA's central body responsible for managing the country's power demand and supply and forecasting, preparing and enforcing power cut schedules.
