Currently, electricity is of great usefulness in operating the daily routine of people and running the production process. Moreover, the regular electrification process contributes to the prevalence of law and order in order to protect the life and property of the people.
Most of the Yangonites require electricity at full capacity. Meanwhile, the government is making utmost efforts in operating power stations to generate electricity for the people through national grids by spending a large amount of the budget.
People need to change their behaviours in consuming electricity. They should efficiently use the electricity in minimizing waste and loss. They have to switch off the lighting and machinery run by electricity if necessary. They have to understand that if they use the least load of electricity, the surplus electricity will be useful for others. If so, efficient consumption of electricity will contribute to the public electrification process.
At present, people are consuming electricity in the rotation due to unbalance of overload and generating capacity. Consumption of electricity in the patience of the people will reflect the smooth process of electrification. It will be a win-win situation for current electrification.
For the time being, the government is striving for generating electricity as much as possible by seeking the proper water sources where hydropower can be generated.
As such, strenuous efforts are being made to generate electricity from State-owned power plants — 280 megawatts from Upper Yeywa Hydropower Project, 51 megawatts from Upper Kengtawng Hydropower Project, 111 megawatts from Thahtay Hydropower Project and 152 megawatts from Middle Paunglaung Hydropower Project, totalling 594 megawatts — as scheduled.
It is difficult to control the electrification process between the overload of users and generating capacity of power plants. Sometimes, the supply of electricity on schedule is cut so as to reduce the overload of electricity consumption. Moreover, electricity cannot be supplied to people in time because of the lesser load of electricity.
As the government cannot supply electricity to the people at full capacity depending on the budget allotment, people need to keep patient in consuming the electricity with understanding the financial situation of the country and supporting the work process of the government.
Implementation of power plant projects depends on the allotment of the State budget. The government is seeking ways and means for generating electricity through hydropower, wind power, solar energy and other sources in order to electrify the people as much as possible. As the government cannot supply electricity to the people at full capacity depending on the budget allotment, people need to keep patient in consuming the electricity with understanding the financial situation of the country and supporting the work process of the government.
