Uganda to Extend Power Supply to Neighbouring South Sudan

The government is working on an interconnection to export electricity to South Sudan. This initiative will aim to create a stable, electricity-sharing platform for the East African Community. "The interconnection with South Sudan is in line with the EAC policy of connecting each country to have power sharing grid for better supply," the UETCL Managing Director Valentine Katabira has said. The interconnection is expected to be completed 2021.
