Rainfall, tower damage obstructs electricity supply in Sudurpaschim

KATHMANDU: Incessant rainfall in the Sudurpaschim province has affected electricity supply in it’s seven districts.

A transmission tower in Kailali’s Godavari fell on Sunday evening, making the lives of the locals hard, informs Niranraj Shah, the chief of NEA’s distribution centre in Dadeldhura.

Shah says the officials are trying their best to get electricity back and running, but the rain is not helping them.

“We’re installing new poles and trying to use old transmission lines to make sure these places have electricity,” says Shah.

But, using the old transmission lines will have its adverse effects as people will have to face untimely power cuts as these lines will not be able to bear the high voltage, he says.

“We will try to make sure electricity is up by Monday evening,” says Shah.

It has been raining heavily in Sudurpaschim since October 6.
