“Electricity is a basic need and electricity is the engine of development. If you look into the criteria used to start a development, you will see that electricity is at the top.

The ministry has admitted the high tariff price of the new power system and is prioritizing its reduction. The first 100 kW of power will be free, to help low income residents.
