Nepal Electricity Authority on Friday, issuing a notice, called a tender to export 200 MW of electricity produced from different hydro-power projects of Nepal. NEA has called for proposal from Indian companies to sale 200 MW of electricity from July 1 to November 15, when Nepal will have electricity surplus.

Nepal has received permission from Indian authorities to sale 364 MW electricity some time ago. Of the 364 MW NEA wants to export 200 MW of electricity to the highest bidder through competition, said Kulman Ghishing, NEA Managing Director during a press meet on Saturday. Nepal will export the surplus electricity through 400 KVA Dhalkevar- Mujaffarpur cross border transmission line, he said.

The interested Indian companies may apply within 21 days of publication of the notice dated May 6, 2022. Nepal has already received permission from Indian authorities to export electricity generated from Trishuli, Devghat, Kaligandaki A, Marsyangdi, Middle Marsyangdi and Likhu power projects.

The interested electricity buyers should deposit Irs. 30,000 per MW of electricity as earnest money for the purchase of the electricity.
