The Minister of Energy in Tanzania, January Makamba has said that the actual cost of connecting electricity to houses for urban and rural residents is Sh800,000.

However, he has said that the Government has been providing subsidies to reduce the cost by realizing its importance and the real life of Tanzanians.

Speaking yesterday on the 45 Minutes program aired by the ITV television station, Makamba said that the money used to increase Tanzanians’ access to the service could be used to improve other services including expanding the electricity network.

“If a citizen is required to pay Sh27,000, he should know that the Government is contributing Sh773,000 from his pocket and if we say that the customer should pay Sh321,000 at that rate, he should know that the Government is contributing Sh489,000, it is important that this is known.

“The actual costs of electricity and connection are the prices that are set by the Energy and Water Regulatory Authority (Ewura) therefore the Tanzania Electricity Corporation (Tanesco) cannot charge a rate higher than that set by the relevant authority,” he said.

Minister Makamba has said that citizens should realize that Tanesco incurs costs to buy wires, meters and poles.
