KATHMANDU, Nov 9: Water level in the Kulekhani Reservoir, which feeds two hydropower plants, has reached only 1522.55 meters this year -- the lowest point in three years.
This means that only lifeline for stabilizing power supply can generate less electricity this year compared to last year.
KATHMANDU, Nov 8: The power outage is likely to continue as there is less supply of electricity than demand despite some improvement in its infrastructures. The festivals like Dashain, Tihar and Chhat witnessed no load shedding due to closure of industries, sufficient import of electricity from India and around 30 MW internal generation of electricity.
