Ghazni gets 10MW of imported power

Ghazni gets 10MW of imported power

Dec 30, 2017 - 19:34

KABUL (Pajhwok): The supply of imported electricity has been extended to southern Ghazni province that will help reduce power prices there, an official said on Saturday.

Governor Abdul Karim Matin said only 10 Megawatts electricity would be supplied to Ghazni which was not enough. He hoped the power supply would increase in the future.

“The power transferring lines had been earlier cut off in Maidan Wardak province but the wires were reconnected on Friday. I want the people of Maidan Wardak to help protect the electricity supply lines to Ghazni,” he said.

He added the Ministry of Finance has provided 100 million afghanis for the construction of electricity supply facilities in Ghazni City and with this project all residents of Ghazni City would benefit from the utility.

Currently, about 27 percent residents of Ghazni City were being provided with electricity. One kilowatt is accounted for 30 afghanis while the private sector purchased one kilowatt against 59 afghanis.

Jan Mohammad, head of the Da Afghanistan Breshana Shirkat (DABS) for Ghazni, said earlier the residents of Ghazni used diesel for generating power which was not successful and could not facilitate all the people.

He promised the electricity rates in Ghazni would be the same as Kabul.
