ENEO-Cameroon:Over over 161,000 new electricity connections since takeover by British investment fund Actis

Since June 2014, date on which the British investment fund Actis took over the electricity company of Cameroon, over 161,000 new connections to the power grid were completed as at end June 2016, bringing to 975,018 the number of clients of the electricity production and distribution company, we learned from reliable sources.

According to Eneo, concessionaire of the public electricity service who revealed these figures in a document sent to the local public authorities, and of which Invest in Cameroon was privy; this volume of new connections was only achieved after taking some measures to optimise yields on this activity segment.

These are, we learn, the reduction in the prepaid consumption for household connections, the simplification of the procedures for power grid connection applicants, the establishment of an online agency to enable users to submit their request without needing to go to an office, or the increase in the connection material stock to have a better responsiveness of the teams when requested.

This ongoing improvement in the accessibility to the power grid in Cameroon for the past two years, according to our sources, is also due to the establishment of a new contractual framework between Eneo and its connection activities subcontractors, in order to improve the speed of execution of requested works.
