Scheduled power outage planned for Kathmandu and Lalitpur on Saturday

KATHMANDU: The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has announced a planned electricity disruption in certain areas of Kathmandu and Lalitpur on Saturday. The temporary outage is necessary to facilitate the upgrading of the Teku substation and the charging of the Teku-Syuchatar 66 KV line to 132 KV.

The scheduled power outage is set to take place from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, during which the NEA will work on completing the first phase of the substation construction. To accomplish this, the existing incomer-1 panel and one of the two power transformers at the Teku substation will be temporarily shut down.

The areas that will be affected by the power interruption include Sanepa, Ram Mandir, Gusingal, Advance College, Amravati, and Radiant School areas, all falling under the Bagmati feeder. Similarly, the power supply will be disrupted in Balkhu, Jhamsikhel, Pulchowk, and Thado Dhunga areas, which fall under the Pulchowk feeder.

In addition to these areas, the following regions will also experience electricity disruption: Gyan Tirtha Marg, Kalimati Salik Chowk, Chhauni, Dallu, Bijeshwari, Swayambhu, Balkhu, Khasibazar, and Tribhuvan University under the Kirtipur feeder, which falls under the Chamati feeder.

The NEA officials have assured the public that all efforts will be made to restore the power supply in these areas before the scheduled time. The Teku Syuchatar 66 KV line will be charged at 132 KV to enhance the power infrastructure and ensure a more reliable electricity supply in the future.
