Minster of Energy, Alhaji Kanja Sesay, has given an upbeat assessment of strides aimed at providing adequate and reliable electricity in the Western Area as well as lauded the efforts of CLSG and EDSA engineers in completing the CLSG-Bumbuna-Freetown interconnection works.

It could be recalled that on 13th July, 2022, the Electricity Distribution and Supply Authority (EDSA), issued a Press Statement to the public that the interconnection works, testing and energization of the TRANSCO/CLSG Line from Bumbuna Substation to Freetown had been completed.

He said the interconnection would appreciably address the issue of load shedding and atone for unexpected or unforeseen shortfalls or drawbacks that the Bumbuna hydroelectric dam and the Karpowership occasionally face.
