Nepal Electricity Authority has reduced weekly power outage by 14 hours, meaning people will have to bear with weekly cuts lasting 70 hours. The new loadshedding schedule will take effect from Wednesday (May 14), according to an NEA notice published today.
As per the new schedule, an NEA-designated area will have to bear with nine-hour-long power outage for two days in a week.
On other days, the area concerned will have to put up with daily power outage of upto 10 hours. On the remaining three days of the week, power outage will last 12, 10.5 and 9.5 hours, respectively, according to the notice.
According to the state-run power monopoly, the outage can be adjusted by an hour depending on favourable or unfavourable circumstances.
However, areas, which are prone to power leakage, will have to bear the brunt of additional one to six hours of outage in a week.
