Winter is here so can long, daily blackouts be far behind? Perhaps not, this year. The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) is expecting a shortage of 50-60 mW as peak winter demand for electricity shoots up, but says the blackout schedule may not stretch for months, as was the case in the past, because a new power project is coming on line. NEA sources say the power cuts won't be formally announced, but will take place-to manage demand and supply-until the second week of February when at least one generation unit of the Kaligandaki A project is expected to begin work.
