Rural Electrification Project To Include 27 Villages

The rural electrification project, funded by the European Union to the tune of four million Euros, will include a number of rural communities that are still off the national grid. Today, Minister of Energy, Michel Chebat told the media that very shortly, a micro grid will be inaugurated and will, for the first time in Belize, be providing four hundred families with electricity.

“We have about 27 villages across the country who don’t have access to electricity. And so the Belize Rural Electrification Project is aimed at correcting that. We have a microgrid that we’re going to be inaugurating on the 12th of October in the village of Indian Creek. And that is going to be serving 400 families, um, between Indian Creek, Golden Stream, and Medina Bank. We’re also looking at, um, implementing and installing microgrids in the village of San Benito Poite, Jalacte, um, San Carlos, Indian Church, and so on. And so the aim is to try to bring electricity to all of our citizens.”
