Surplus of power supply in Kandahar

Local officials in southern Kandahar reported that 75% of residents in southern Kandahar residents would be able to have access to electricity, after authorities have managed to create a surplus.

One of the factors that has increased power supply was curbing of free power usage. Before, electricity was freely used in three localities-close to Kandahar International Iarport, Commando and Quli-Urdu areas in the province. With the installation of new meters, free usage of electricity has been reduced considerably, allowing more supply of electricity to other residents.

While in the past residents were supplied electricity after three days, now it is minimized to alternate days, because electricity usage in these three areas has reduced from 40 percent to 19 percent,” said Sultan Mohammad, the head of power department.

The increase of water level in Kajai Dam also contributed to the higher supply of electricity. The Kajaki Hydroelectric Dam water level has gone up from 50 meters to 70 meters, enabling it to generate 32 megawatts of power as opposed to 24 megawatts in the past.

The Kajaki Dam would prove to be beneficial for the residents of Kandahar and Helmand, as the U.S. has pledged to reinvest in the construction of the dam.
