Nepal Electricity Authority(NEA) is going to import import electric vehicles for promotional purpose and set up charging stations for such vehicles, reports My Republica.
NEA is moving forward rapidly to encourage people to use electric vehicles with the Upper Tamakoshi Hydroelectricity Project starting operation from mid-July of next year. The project is 91% complete.
The electricity produced from this project is going to be wasted in the night time after the project starts power generation. NEA wants to prevent it from wasting from getting people to use electric vehicles.
Moreover, e-cars don’t emit climate damaging greenhouse gases or health-harming nitrogen oxide. They’re quiet and easy to operate.
In the first phase, charging stations will be set up in different places in the Kathmandu then it will soon be set up in other places like Pokhara, Chitwan, Biratnagar, Nepalgunj.
