KATHMANDU, Dec 4: Four megawatt of electricity produced by the Upper Chhyangdi Hydropower Project has been connected to the national grid.
According to the company, it has started test production since November 23. The produced electricity has been connected through a substation based at Udipur. It has constructed its power plant in Dordi Khola of Lamjung district.
Upper Chhyangdi was supposed to start its production by April 2021. However, the production was delayed by around seven months due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the project.
Citing a rise in the project construction cost due to a delay, the company last month proposed to issue 40 percent right shares. The company had already endorsed 30 percent right shares to its shareholders.
