For the first time, Nepal will sell its surplus electricity to India at a competitive rate after New Delhi allowed it to trade in the Indian power exchange market.

The Energy Exchange under India’s Power Ministry on Monday granted permission to Nepal after persistent lobbying from Kathmandu, as Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) is now in a position to sell its surplus energy, according to a report in The Kathmandu Post.

In the first phase, 39MW power, including 24MW produced by NEA-owned Trishuli hydropower and 15MW Devighat power house, has been permitted for trading in Indian Energy Exchange (IEX). Both projects were developed with India’s assistance.
