Union Minister U Aung Than Oo meets officials to discuss electrification plans and mitigation of power outage.

The Ministry of Electricity and Energy is making effort to reduce power outage and to transmit and distribute enough electricity for every household and quarantine centre during the stay-at-home period in the COVID-19 outbreak in Myanmar.
The Ministry held a coordination meeting on the reduction of power shortages for the people yesterday morning in Nay Pyi Taw.
At the meeting, Union Minister U Aung Than Oo said the ministry is making concerted effort to improve the stability of the power system and to supply full voltage and stable electricity, despite the power outages due to the weather, animals and trees. These power outages must be addressed in the future with the goal of (never) power outages, he continued.
The Union Minister also added the challenges in collecting electricity bills due to the insufficient human resources in the ministry. Since the electricity bills are re-used for the electricity generation and distribution of the State, collecting the bill is the responsibility of the ministry’s employees and paying for it is the duty of the people. He called on the employees to continue to work together to collect the electricity bill.
Officials from respective departments discussed the power outage at substations, the situation of power outage in each transformer in each township and measures to be taken to prevent it.—MNA
