May 28: The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) is preparing to supply power from underground transmission line system in the Kathmandu Valley within two months.
The NEA is working to supply power in each household from the underground supply system in Ratnapark, Maharajgunj and Lazimpat areas from the Maharajgunj and Ratnapark Distribution Centres.
NEA Spokesperson Suresh Bahadur Bhattarai said that power supply would be distributed from the underground transmission line in Kritipur area as well.
Spokesperson Bhattarai, however, said that existing electric poles will not be replaced for some more months despite the power supply through underground system to the consumers' households and offices from the certain points on the road.
The NEA is preparing to supply power from this system in most of the sites in the upcoming winter season. -- RSS
