Every Nepali household can use electricity in next 3 years: Authority

Kathmandu, December 12

Nepal Electricity Authority says its national transmission grid will reach all families of the country within the next three years.

The authority’s spokesperson Prabal Adhikari says the authority is working towards meeting its target now since it has already secured needful resources for that.

As of now, Karnali is the least illuminated province with the national electricity grid. Only 30 per cent households in the province have access to electricity, the authority says.

Since the province has difficult terrain, electrification in Karnali needs more money, but the government is receiving a loan of Rs 22 billion from Asian Infrastructure Development Bank and European Investment Bank at a subsidised rate. The authority plans to use the money in Karnali, Sudurpaschim and Province 5.

Meanwhile, the authority says 40 districts of the country will have access to electricity completely by the end of this fiscal year.
