(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroon’s electricity company Eneo announces it successfully connected 29,487 new households to the national grid at end April 2019, up 27.4% compared to the same period last year.

The company also reports a total of 1,204,912 customers on grid over the period reviewed, reflecting a year-on-year improvement by 6.6%. And currently, it says, 7,961 others are waiting to be connected.

Eneo attributes its performances to the improvement in response time which made it possible to carry out 89% of connections on time, 15.7% better than the same period in 2018. “Overall, the average time taken to complete the connections has risen from 18 days in 2018 to 4 days in 2019. In urban areas, time went from 11 days in 2018 to 3 days now; and from 29 days in 2018 to 14 days, in rural areas.”

Yet, the company regrets the deterioration in the quality of energy delivered to users in recent months. Although work on the grid has been intensified, the number of micro power outages (less than one hour) increased, with an average of more than two per day.
