At the end of July, statistics showed a 99,2% electricity service rate nationwide, benefiting a total of 682,730 homes, according to the Pastrán Report bulletin.
Nicaragua has already reached universal electricity service and is the second Central American nation to achieve such results.
According to the Energy and Mines Minister Salvador Mansell, it is top priority for the Sandinista Executive to raise these levels of energy supply in the country.
“We have been investing a millionaire amount on this new matrix since 2007. We´re talking about nearly $4 billion, Mansell said in statements to Pastrán Report Bulletin.
As many as 7,273 homes will have electricity service in 2022, and 1,641 will be normalized, by investing $20,6 million, financed by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration and the national government.
Official data affirm that since 2007 (return to power of the Sandinista government) to date, the distribution of electric energy has been strengthened here, for which 3,499 kilometers of transmission lines and 103 electric substations have been built.
