U Maung Win, Deputy Director-General of the Department of Rural Development, announced that steps are now taken to provide electricity to a total of 900 villages nationwide through small-scale home solar systems at a cost of K20 billion in 2024.
The project commenced in the 2016-2017 financial year to bring electricity to villages located more than 10 miles away from the national grid.
“In implementing the project, priority is given to villages that can contribute a specific amount towards the cost. Currently, approximately 10,000 villages (500,000 houses) have been electrified under the World Bank’s programme between the 2016–2017 financial year and the 2021–2022 financial year,” stated U Maung Win. — ASH/MKKS
