Safal Kulman Ghising plans to win the hearts of the people again.

Nepal, which has been undergoing 18-hour load setting in the past, has been adding more hydropower projects every year for the past few years. From the private and government sectors, the return on investment in electricity has reached its full potential. He said that when he was in the Electricity Authority, 65% of the people had access to electricity and now it has reached 95%. He said that as the work is still going on continuously from the central broadcast, it will soon reach area as well.

He said that he has requested to install electricity in every new and old Gumba temple and he is constantly struggling to reach all the areas. He said that he has been continuously involved in the work of spreading electricity in the entire region of Nepal in a program of the monastery which has been observed by the Bidhishthas. He said that he has been making continuous efforts to provide electricity to the citizens of Humla Jumla.

As a country with unlimited potential for power generation, Nepal has been developing one after the other since Kulman Ghising took over the leadership. According to NEA, an additional 600 MW of electricity has been generated from 11 projects across the country in the last six months. The government aims to generate 1000 MW of electricity in the fiscal year 2078-89. The electricity generated by the private sector and its subsidiary companies has generated 456 MW from 142 MW. The project has generated 5 megawatts from solar, 6,200 megawatts from Luwajogmai, 4.52 megawatts from Likhu, 4 megawatts from Aparachyangdi and 11 megawatts from Lorkhare Hydropower Project.

He said that as the repair work of the damaged lines has increased rapidly, electricity can be consumed as much as required. In Kathmandu, the supply is 1550-1600 MW in the morning and 1700 MW in the evening, he said. Ghising says that 1000 MW will be added soon after the addition of Chobhar, Teku, Thimi, Futung, Mulpani, Chagunarayan and Balkumari.

Ghusing said that work has been started for the 132kb underground now, but he did not know what time it would come at any given time. Since then, people have started using electricity more, now the demand for electricity has increased by 25-30 percent, says Kulman Ghising. Statistics show that there are 2.6 million people in Nepal who use less than 20 units of electricity. As Nepal is an agricultural country, those who use electricity for irrigation will be given 50% discount. Nepal is the second richest country in the world in terms of water resources.

The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA), like other government offices in Nepal, was in deficit some time ago, when Kulman Ghising stepped into the NEA, saying that the people should use as much electricity as they need, taking advantage of the NEA, which has always been in deficit. There is ample amount, due to which the common citizen can use as much as he needs, even using 4-5 hundred megawatts more daily. Nepal has the potential to sell its resources to other countries. Due to the negligence on the part of the employees, some areas have gone into deficit, which has caused misery to the common man.

Nepal is considered to be a country rich in water resources. There is a lot of potential to generate electricity here. Unable to utilize the resources within the country, the Nepalese people are dependent on the products of other countries. Lately, Kulman Ghising has been adding one hydropower project after another to make Nepal dark free. They have been believing that electric vehicles should be used instead of motor vehicles running on diesel petrol running in the Nepali market, which keeps the atmosphere clean and beautiful. Which does not affect our health, and Nepali money stays inside Nepal.
