Sustainable and reliable electricity is still a work in progress in Uganda. Currently, the country has installed capacity of 743 MW for hydropower against the estimated 2,200 MW that is required to power the country. With an ever growing urban population, load shedding is inevitable amidst repairs and maintenance of current equipment. EcoFlow has just the products to power your gadgets, house, during these blackouts.
EcoFlow: Environment-friendly power solutions to Uganda's loadshedding problem
Every other month, UMEME publishes a list of areas that are to be affected by blackouts to fore arm residents to plan their days accordingly. This results in massive power blackouts that see many people relocating to areas with power.
"While we work to ensure that our customers stay powered up, we regularly embark on maintenance practices e.g. maintenance of our equipment, hardware/software upgrades, troubleshoot incidents and unplanned issues. More often than not, these practices will lead to power outages. You can now know when and where the power outage will be and plan your day better."
Frequent maintenance and repair has become the new load shedding, where, instead of shutting down areas to prevent overload, the strain requires frequent check-ins. The inconvenience and disruptions take a toll on business, work and personal activities.
