India grants Nepal approval to Sell 365 Megawatt electricity in Indian Market
Kathmandu: Nepal has been given permission to sell 365 Megawatt electricity in Indian Market. The approval is announced days after Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a vision statement on power sector cooperation.
Nepal’s electricity production is increasing due to summer & recent meet of Deuba-modi made it possible. During times other than peak hours, excess power are generated. “Power generation in one or more projects usually gets disrupted during the monsoon due to the damage caused by flooding, so we may not be able to generate power equivalent to the total installed capacity,” said Suresh Bhattarai, spokesperson of the NEA. “So, there is a little chance of our electricity getting wasted in the upcoming monsoon following the latest approval to more power projects by the Indian authorities,” he added.
