The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has introduced a strategic plan to increase electricity consumption in the country and directed all the distribution centres across the country to upgrade their transformers.
According to NEA Executive Director Kulman Ghising, it has become challenging for the authority to utilise the electricity generated in the country. Speaking at a program held in Kathmandu yesterday, Ghising said that NEA is gearing up to encourage people to use induction stoves instead of LPG gas for cooking and electric vehicles for their daily commute.
NEA is also preparing to establish charging stations for electric vehicles.
Moreover, Ghising directed all chiefs of electricity distribution centres to upgrade their distribution systems to ensure smooth supply of electricity to the public.
