Rural area in Tatkon Township illuminated with solar panels


Thabyegon, Natmar and Kwantaw villages, 10 miles northeast of Tatkon Township, received supply of electricity through solar panels as of Thursday.
Nay Pyi Taw Council members U Phone Zaw Han and U Myint Shwe and Nay Pyi Taw Council Area electrical engineer U Kyaw Nyein launched supply of electricity to the three villages, while township administrator U Kan Saw Hlaing handed over documents related to the electrification project to the village authorities.
Nay Pyi Taw Council spent K168 million from the 2014-15 additional budget on power supply facilities so as to improve the living standard of local residents, allowing them to use electric lighting instead of oil lamps. Min Yazar Aung Company was assigned duty to install solar panels and related equipment at 840 houses from the village-tract.
“We did not need to spend money on installation of solar panels thanks to arrangement of the Nay Pyi Taw Council. All the people from the village-tracts are very happy in enjoying the supply of electricity,” a local resident said at the ceremony.
