(Business in Cameroon) - In a newsletter published last month (February 2018), ENEO revealed that in the framework of its 2018 Action plan, it would construct 100,000 new electrical connections to grant half a million people access to electricity.

For that purpose, the electricity provider set an investment budget of CFA37.5 billion for 2018. According to the company, 50% of this budget will be used to renovate, modernize and extend the distribution network. The company’s officials explain that this investment is crucial since due to the commissioning of Lom-Pangar dam (6 billion metric cube), the power generated is sufficient to reduce the electricity shortages but these shortages are now caused by the multiple incidents along the distribution network.
