The Electricity Generation Company (Egenco) has reiterated its commitment to increasing energy output for the country in the short to medium terms.

The state-run energy generation company set an ambitious plan of increasing installed electricity capacity to 1,687.5 Megawatts (MW) by 2023.

This comes as less than 12 percent of the country’s population has access to electricity with installed capacity of 367.37 MW only.

In a response to an emailed questionnaire, Egenco Senior Public Relations Officer, Mosses Gwaza, said the company is producing an average 250 MW.

He said the company is operating on a road map that is in tandem with the National Energy Policy of 2016 and the Integrated Resource Plan of 2018 covering both short and long term solutions to addressing energy challenges.
