(Business in Cameroon) - No load shedding was reported in the northern regions (North, Adamaoua, and Far North) of Cameroon between January and March 2023, the electricity company Eneo announced. This is good news for the population of these regions that have not experienced such a quarter for more than 3 years.

"We have been experiencing a balance between supply and demand since August 2022, after the rainy season ended. Differently from the past, this season was marked by very heavy rainfall on the Benue watershed, filling the Lagdo dam to a sufficient level," Eneo explained.

In addition to good rainfall, the steady electricity supply in the northern regions over the period is also the result of the commissioning of new solar power plants. According to Eneo, since 2022, between 15 and 18 MW of solar power are available for the northern grid, thanks to the modular power plants set up in Maroua and Guider, in partnership with Scatec.

"Other factors also included the growth of the thermal production park, with the installation of new production units in Ngaoundéré, Garoua, and Maroua," we learn.
