Rwanda government intend to extend power to at least 70 per cent of the households in the country, to boost electricity generation to 563MW within the next two years.

According to statement from Rwanda’s Ministry of power revealed that 25 per cent of the country’s households are connected to electricity, while the country’s total installed power capacity is around 190MW, an increase from 186MW in 2015.

Despite this rise in generation, industrial energy users have continued to complain of insufficient power supply, a situation they say has affected production and raised operational costs.
