Ministry of Electricity and Energy will accelerate its short-term and long-term energy projects amid the power shortage as power supply plays a pivotal role in Myanmar’s economic growth, said U Aung Than Oo, Union Minister for MoEE.
He remarked at the meeting regarding the power distribution sector, held at No. 27 office of MoEE in Nay Pyi Taw at 10 am on 21 April.
He instructed to make a constructive approach as people have limited access to energy with the hour shifts due to the load management. He addressed minimizing energy waste, providing adequate electric supply, and collecting meter bills for the State’s revenue.
He added that tree trimming near power lines and warning of electrocution, evaluation of energy grids, and maintenance of equipment for sustainable power grids and power distribution are required.
According to the MoEE’s statement on 20 April, the maximum electric generation was estimated at 2,662.8 MW, and the demand requirement was 3,550 MW. Power supply fell short of 887.2 MW on 19 April amid peak demand. — Htun Htun/GNLM
