More than a decade later, Catata is once again enjoying electricity

More than a decade later, light came back on in the commune of Catata, in the municipality of Caála, province of Huambo. The 'darkness' that reached the commune in 2010, after two generator sets suffered a technical breakdown, is now coming to an end with the installation, this month, of a 150 Kva generator set (kilovoltampere), thus enabling citizens to return to use electricity.


Thus, according to Angop, in a first phase, the referred equipment is supplying 53 houses, out of 120 conjectured, in addition to public institutions and public lighting.

The installation of the generator set – which took place with funds from the Integrated Plan for Intervention in Municipalities (PIIM) – was seen by the deputy administrator of that commune, José Gomes Matias Canhongue, as a historical fact for the population, since it will promote socioeconomic development from the region, with the supply of energy, both from the public network and from homes, writes Angop.

The official also considered, in declarations to Angop, that with electricity the lives of citizens will become simpler, with the arrival of investors, especially in the field of commerce, considering the capacity to conserve products and added that the administration of the region will invest in expanding the public and home network, in addition to making the population aware of the importance of conserving the assets made available by the State.

It should be noted that more than a decade ago, Catata lost access to electricity. According to Angop, the case happened in 2010, when two generators of 60 and 90 Kva suffered a technical malfunction, and now, 13 years later, the population of that commune is again able to enjoy electricity.
