Nepal Electricity Authority’s Underground Electricity Distribution System Nears Completion

Underground Electricity Distribution System

The Nepal Electricity Authority has finished building an underground electricity distribution network in several locations across Kathmandu Valley. The authority announced that the underground system will undergo testing in areas such as Pepsicola-Jadibuti, Lainchour-Narayangopal Chowk, Chuchchepati-Chabahil-Mitrapark, Kalanki-Tripureshwar, Kalimati-Balkhu, Kirtipur-Ring Road, and Samakhushi Town Planning, and will be operational within a few days.

The authority is confident that this new system will enhance the efficiency and safety of electricity distribution. As part of this project, the authority will also remove electricity poles and transfer overhead distribution lines underground.

Therefore, the authority has urged relevant stakeholders to remove any structures and equipment, such as internet cables, optical fibers, CCTV cameras, street lights, etc., attached to the poles in these areas within a 6-month timeframe.

If these devices are not removed within the given timeframe, the authority will not be responsible for any damages caused by the removal of overhead structures, including poles. The underground power system is expected to enhance the city’s beauty and scenery, and bring significant changes to Nepal’s energy sector.
