Kathmandu- Managing Director of Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) Kulman Ghising said that electrification in all sectors is a must to increase the consumption of electricity generated within Nepal.

Addressing a program in the capital on Thursday, Ghising said that the internal market of electricity will be extended if the sectors such as industry, transportation and household are completely electrified.

“We can also expand the regional market of electricity by enhancing power trade with India and Bangladesh,” said he adding that discussions with India have been held in this connection.

On the occasion, he informed that NEA is planning to increase electricity generation through solar energy. He also said that NEA will soon expand the supply of power completing the Upper Tamakoshi hydro project at the earliest.
