Kathmandu, Sept 14
The Cabinet meeting today appointed Kulman Ghising as the managing director of Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA).
Ghising will serve for four years as the management head of the country’s sole power off-taker.
Ghising has been associated with NEA for over two decades. Prior to being appointed as the managing director, he was serving as the project chief of Rahughat Hydroelectricity Project. Ghising had also served as the managing director of Chilime Hydropower Company Ltd under NEA.
Ghising also has experience of power trade, distribution and other fields under his belt.
Talking to The Himalayan Times after being appointed as NEA managing director, Ghising said that his focus will be on three areas — ending load-shedding, improving the financial health of NEA and making the country self-reliant in energy.
