PAC to grill promoters of Khimti and Upper Bhotekoshi over PPA

RUDRA PANGENI
Both the project developers have been deferring repeated proposals of NEA as well as MoE to revise the dollar-based power purchase agreements.

KATHMANDU, Sept 1: The parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has decided to grill the promoters of Khimti and Upper Bhotekoshi hydropower projects, citing heavy loss incurred by the state-run Nepal Electricity Authority following the Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) signed with these projects.

A PAC sub-committee formed to study these PPAs signed in US dollars has summoned officials of Himal Power, the promoter of 60 MW Khimti, and Bhotekoshi Power Company, the promoter of 45 MW Upper Bhotekoshi, on September 11. [More]
