Kathmandu, May 8
The state-run electricity distribution monopoly, Nepal Electricity Authority, says it is constructing eight high-capacity substations in the Kathmandu valley to improve the valley’s electricity transmission and distribution system.
The authority says the substations will have 400, 200 and 132-kilo voltage capacities.
The authority has prepared a plan to improve the valley’s electricity distribution system gradually until 2050, and under it, the substations are being built in Lapsepheri, Matatirkha, Chobhar, Phutung, Teku and Mulpani of Kathmandu; and Thimi and Changunarayan of Bhaktapur.
The stations in Teku and Changunarayan have reached the final stage of construction and they would come into operation in the next two months, the authority says.
