Electricity Distribution

The energy sales by distribution utilities on the main grid increased by 5% in 2019 as compared to 9% increase in 2018. The lower growth in energy sales is majorly attributed to the heavy rains in 2019 and limited export by manufacturers with neighboring countries thereby constraining production and electricity consumption of industrial consumers.
