Is there any relation between weather / rainfall amount and load shedding in Nepal?

- Yes! Because most of the hydel projects in Nepal are based on Run-Off-River (ROR) type amount of precipitation highly influences power generation. Lesser rainfall yields longer load shedding hours in cold and dry season (winter - spring time). Note: load shedding pattern based on past 5 years data.
