(Business in Cameroon) - In Q1-2021, electric utility ENEO added 39,298 new clients to its portfolio, according to information the company published in its recent quarterly bulletin. This makes 1.5 million residential, commercial and industrial clients connected to the country’s electricity network.

ENEO indicates that 38% of the new clients it made in Q1-2021 are in the rural zones. Although urban zones still have the largest electricity access rate in Cameroon (with 36% of the new connections in metropolitan areas and 26% in urban areas between January and March 2021), there is an acceleration in the connections in rural areas.

The fact is that 44% (17,364 clients) of the new clients entered ENEO’s portfolio thanks to the normalization operations organized to turn people that were previously using electricity illegally in the country into clients. As for the remaining 56% (21,934 clients), they entered the portfolio thanks to the new connections made by the electric utility during the period under review.

Let’s note that this acceleration of connections in rural zones coincides with the PRERETD, a government program aimed at renovating and extending the electricity transport and distribution network to boost electricity access in 465 localities in the country.
