Namibia is set to electrify peri urban areas as a way to make electricity available in informal settlements, the Namibia Power Corporation (NamPower) said Thursday.

Nampower’s managing director Kahenge Haulofu said the ‘electrification project’ aims to provide electricity to 1,000 households, as part of the state utility’s social investment.

The cost of the project is 15.5 million Namibia dollars (about 890,000 U.S. dollars) and the state utility will fund the project. This project is in collaboration with the City of Windhoek.

“To this effect, the City of Windhoek identified nine informal areas which are ready for electrification. Nampower’s contribution to the nine informal areas will be the electrification of a total of 1,000 households. The electrification will be aligned to the existing City of Windhoek 5-year electrification plan,” Haulofu said. Enditem
