Twelve Villages to Finally Get Electricity

Oscar Requeña

And while Minister Requeña spoke of the water system upgrades in various villages, he also shared that some of the thirty-six villages that are still without electricity supply will soon be connected to the grid.

 

Oscar Requeña, Minister of Rural Development

“Nine villages will be chosen in the first instance, based on a specific selection criteria tool to install mini-grids in these areas, which will aid in allowing these villages and communities to have access to electricity, water and telecommunications. This is at a total cost of four point five million Euros. This is significant, Madam Speaker. I also want to say that I am very happy to report to the nation that work is well underway in the completion of the mini-grid for Medina Bank, Golden Stream, and Indian Creek. We are hoping that that system is going to be up and running and commissioned by October of this year.”
