A Ministry of Energy officer, Alinafe Kasinja, has said there is need to increase interventions to enable more people access electricity, as only 18 percent of Malawians have access to electricity as a source of energy.

Kasinja said this in Balaka on Wednesday during the commissioning of a K1.3 milllion solar energy hub at Mzepa Primary School by Community Energy Malawi (CEM).

He further said that government is ready to work with organisations who provide power sources in hard to reach areas, as this will help in enhancing development.

Balaka District Commissioner Darwin Mngoli said Balaka’s weather is sunny and favourable for solar energy and therefore commended CEM, saying their energy hub will help improve education and irrigation systems, among others, in the area.

Balaka District CEM Coordinator, Louis Yona, said the main focus is to connect schools, teachers’ houses and more shops following demand from people, adding the current energy cannot connect a maize meal and other houses as the hub only produces 125KwH of electricity.
