Managing power for mornings still challenging for NEA

KATHMANDU: The demand for power in the morning is as equal as in the evening throughout the country, according to the Nepal Electricity Authority.

As various industries also operate since the early morning, managing the electricity for households for this time has been a challenge, according to the government-owned power monopoly.

The demand for power in the morning is 895 Megawatt against around 950 to 1,200 MW in the evening.

"Managing the morning demand is new and complex in terms of experience," NEA Executive Director Kul Man Ghising said.

More than two-thirds of the demand for power is from the Kathmandu Valley.
