THE Rural Electrification Authority (REA) has started an ambitious initiative to partner with various stakeholders in upscaling and accelerating electricity uptake in rural areas where it is less than five percent.
REA chief executive officer Clement Silavwe said the authority will work with various stakeholders like Engie Power Corner to ensure that rural areas have access to clean and affordable energy.
Mr Silavwe said this yesterday at the launch of the Modern Electric Cooking Services (MECS) project, an initiative of Engie Power Corner.
