This preliminary estimate has shown that about 42,000 MW of hydroelectricity could be generated in Nepal which is feasible techno-economically. Such huge potential of hydroelectricity is due to the perennial rivers flowing from north to south of the country with favorable topographical terrain for the generation of hydroelectric projects. However, in reality, only one and a half percent of this potential has been harnessed to date. As of F.Y. 2011/12, the Integrated Nepal Power System (INPS) has a total installed capacity of about 730 MW. However, country's overall power supply at present is around 850 MW including power imported from India; which is still insufficient to fulfill the country's peak power demand of approximately 1026 MW. Also, due to the typical nature of climate in this region, discharge of Nepalese river diminishes significantly during winter season, when the demand is relatively higher, leading to acute power shortage for nearly half of the year starting in October. Consequently, the country is facing load-shedding ranging up to more than hundred hours per week. Hence, country needs to construct new hydropower project rapidly.

Liberty Energy Company Limited was established in 2066 BS with the sole aim of harnessing hydropower potential of the country in order to contribute for the development of the country. This company has been promoted by national level leading businessmen, hydropower developers and hydropower professionals. Currently, the company is promoting Upper Dordi 'A' Hydroelectric Project, 25 MW; located in Lamjung district of Gandaki Zone.
