BIRGANJ-Low voltage in electric supply has affected industries here. Many are on the verge of closing down because of the low current. According to the Nepal Electricity Association, this has happened since the production of electricity in Kulekhani declined because of the dry season and the load in Pathlaiya-Parbanipur grid's 66 KVA transmission line increased. At present, only around five to 10 megawatts of electricity is produced at Kulekhani at night. Birganj Distribution Centre's Chief, Deepak Acharya, says that the problem can only be solved after a 132 KVA wire is fitted from Kulekhani's electricity production to Patlaiya-Parbanipur grid.
