In order to provide quality services to the citizens, Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has decided to launch “Bright Clean City” campaign to enhance the beauty of the city.
NEA has strengthened the Bright Clean Cities campaign to promote the government’s Bright Nepal campaign in different ways.
To this end, in coordination and cooperation with municipalities, it has been decided to install smart lighting on major roads, World Heritage-listed historical and cultural sites, and tourist attractions.
The plan will enhance the beauty of the city, increase the demand for electricity and also consume useless power, said Kulman Gethin, executive director of the National Energy Board.
Geising, who has been a leader in stopping power outages in the past, has been focused on improving power quality and access to electricity.
A similar campaign is removing unnecessary poles and wires in urban areas. geising said work is underway to remove unused and unnecessary poles and wires on main and secondary roads and to lay wires underground.
In the first phase, the NEA plans to launch a bright and clean city campaign in the federal capital Bharatpur in the Kathmandu Valley and the tourist hub Pokhara metropolis, and then roll it out across the country.
Minister of Power, Water Resources and Irrigation Pampa Bhusa announced the improvement of the quality of distribution systems through her action plan and the expansion of underground distribution systems in urban areas by increasing the capacity of distribution lines and substations. The NEA said it would launch a “Bright and Clean Cities” campaign to implement the declaration.
In the first phase, work is underway to lay underground power lines in Maharajgunj and Ratna Park areas of Kathmandu.
“The network of wires from various service providers, which make the city unsightly, will be removed and placed in our own underground system. this will also improve the aesthetics and make the city cleaner,” said Geising.
The NEA is currently working around Ratna Park and Maharajgunj distribution centers in Kathmandu to take the distribution system in the Kathmandu Valley underground.
In the second phase, trenching work will move forward in the rest of Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Bhaktapur, Pokhara and Bharatpur. Internet, telecom and TV service providers will be able to use fiber optics for their services as it will be laid along with the wires.
