Togo: Government wants to reduce power losses by 2%

(Togo First) - The Togolese ministry of energy and mines will monitor and check the network of the country’s power utility (CEET). This was disclosed last week during the government seminar that was held in Kpalimé.

Through the move, the ministry hopes to cut power losses by at least 2%; losses which the ministry blames on fraudulent use of electricity.

"Strong action will be taken in this direction in the coming days, such as equipment check-ups aimed at reducing the loss rate by at least 2%, per its (the CEET) performance contract," the statement from the Ministers’ council read.

This campaign aligns with various efforts of the government to achieve universal access to power in Togo by 2030. These include the construction of the 65 MW Kekeli Efficient Power plant and Blitta’s solar plant last year. There is also the launch of the Tinga Fund, a "mechanism for facilitating access to electricity for low-income populations."

More initiatives include a program to extend power networks in urban centers, another to introduce reforms and boost investments in the energy sector, and a project to expand Lomé’s power network.
