KATHMANDU, Nov 3: Managing Director of the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) Kulman Ghising has urged the private sector to join hands with the NEA in its efforts to maintain energy efficiency effectively.
Addressing a section of energy sector stakeholders in Lalitpur, Ghising said that the NEA has been working to maintain energy efficiency by striking a balance between the demand and supply of electricity across the country.
"I would like to urge the Alternative Energy Promotion Centre (AEPC) to set up required infrastructures to launch energy efficiency programs," he said.
Ghising also reiterated to provide electricity through the national grid to all the households across the country within three years.
"To realize this goal, NEA will work with the AEPC in the coming days," he said. He also advised the AEPC to provide grant assistance to communities rather than individuals while setting up alternative energy in households in the days to come.
