Private electrification companies in Yangon to go under review

THE functions of private electrification companies in Yangon Region will be under review, according to Yangon Region government’s Electricity, Industry and Transportation Minister Daw Nilar Kyaw.
According to the minister, some of these companies have been found to show less adherence to contract terms.
Daw Nilar Kyaw told the Yangon Region Hluttaw yesterday that the matter would be brought to the Ministry of Electricity and Energy to review their contracts for any possible breach.
The Yangon Electricity Supply Corporation has hired some private companies to distribute power to select townships in the region.
Last fiscal year, the YESC bought 6,700 billion units of electricity from the national grid system and resold 5,913 billion units.
Yangon Region, as a commercial city, consumes 1,250 megawatts, which is more than half of the country’s total electricity generation, and is still in need of 15 per cent more to satisfy its total demand.
