Sweden is providing 8.7 million US dollars for the gas fired generators which will meet the growing demand for electricity.
Currently, the two districts rely on the Temane gas power plant for electricity. However, this no longer meets the peak demand.
According to the Swedish Embassy, the project will improve the socio-economic well being of an estimated 190 000 people in the districts by “providing sufficient, affordable and reliable electricity which will in turn help boost economic growth, facilitate delivery of public services such as health and education. and encourage the use of more environmentally friendly electricity”.
