Peru has started a program that will provide electricity to more than 2 million of its residents at no cost.

The first phase of “The National Photovoltaic Household Electrification Program” began on July 8 with the installation of 1,601 solar panels in the Contumaza province. This phase of the project will provide electricity to 126 communities throughout Cupisnique, San Benito, Chilete, Tantarica, Yonan, San Luis, and Contai. 12,500 solar (photovoltaic) systems will provide 500,000 households, about 2 million people, with free electricity in the second phase of the project.

The Energy and Mining Minister of Peru, Jorge Merino stated, “This program is aimed at the poorest people,” “those who lack access to electric lighting and still use oil lamps, spending their own resources to pay for fuels that harm their health.”

Merino stated to the Latin American Herald, “the program will allow 95 percent of Peru to have access to electricity by the end of 2016, when President Ollanta Humala’s term ends”.

According to Merino, 66% of Peru’s 24 million people have access to electricity.

It can be noted that Nigeria is rich in crude oil resources but most of its citizens live with erratic power supply daily.
