REG should explain more on energy imports

Editor, Refer to the story, "Rwanda to import 430MW of power to increase energy capacity - REG" (The New Times, October 28). Congratulations Rwanda! That is an important milestone that will surely help in the country's development. But the country's power production, at only 138MW, is still very low and so much more investment is needed. Rwanda just keep up, you will reach there!

I hope it’s not too soon, but I believe REG should show the public a clear timeframe to wean Rwanda off the imported power since it’s also an added cost that eats into the national budget and somehow weighs onto the private sector.

The New Times should give us a follow up to this story.
