- The Project for Electrification of Zinhane Administrative Post foresees, still in this first phase, to connect 400 new clients.
- EDM continues to mobilise resources to progressively enable over 10 million Mozambicans to have access to electricity by 2024.
The Government disbursed 65 million meticals to connect the Zinhane Administrative Post, in Chigubo District, Gaza province, to the National Electricity Network (REN), having in the horizon the goal to connect until 2024 all the 145 administrative posts (AP) of the country.
In fact, Zinhane is connected to the National Electric Network since the 31st of January, connection that was materialized through the construction of 24 kilometres of 33kv Medium Voltage line, from the Machaila junction, in Mapai district, and 60 public lighting lamps were also installed, 5km of Low Voltage network were built and two (2) 100KVA Distribution Transformers were installed.
This is the first PA to be connected to REN in this year of 2023, totaling 48 PAs electrified since 2020, in the scope of the project of Electrification of the Administrative Posts Headquarters. Thus of the 45 existing in Gaza province, Zinhane is the 40th PA to be electrified.
According to a statement from Eletricidade de Moçambique, the Electrification Project of the Zinhane Administrative Post foresees, still in this first phase, to connect 400 new clients.
It should be noted that within the scope of the Energy for All Programme (PROENERGIA) and the project for electrification of the headquarters of the country’s administrative posts, Eletricidade de Moçambique, E.P (EDM) continues to mobilise resources to progressively enable over 10 million Mozambicans to have access to electricity by 2024.
The Energy for All Project aims to intensify access to electricity for more households and businesses nationwide, as a contribution to Mozambique’s universal electrification by 2030 defined in the National Electrification Strategy (ENE) approved by the Council of Ministers on 16 October 2018.
The Project will support the expansion of power access to peri-urban and rural areas across the country by leveraging and extending the existing national electricity grid and deploying mini-grids on the basis of solar generation in areas not covered by the national grid.
