The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) announced plans to construct transmission lines and substations with capacity ranging from 66 kV to 220 kV in the Kathmandu Valley. The goal is to improve the electricity distribution system in the area by providing regular, high voltage electricity and reducing issues such as power outages.

The NEA’s Executive Director, Kulman Ghising, stated that these improvements will meet the power demand in the Valley for the next 30 years and that a ring circuit will be built in Kathmandu.

Additionally, a 132 kV transmission line will be constructed along river banks and substations will be built in the Kavrepalanchok district. The Valley has been suffering from forced load-shedding due to a lack of transmission infrastructure and substations. The NEA is also working to repair, upgrade, and expand existing transmission lines and substations.

The NEA has also made a public notice for land acquisition for these projects as per Clause 61 of the Land Acquisition Act, 2034 BS. A total of 61 families’ lands will be acquired for these projects.

This news was released on the 25th of January.
