OPE to offer electricity connections free of charge

OSHAKATI Premier Electric (OPE) is requesting residents of Oshakati whose houses have been connected to the power grid to approach the office so that their houses can be electrified. Speaking to Confidente this week, OPE’s marketing and events coordinator Utoni Abed said that OPE has launched a programme to electrify all the houses in the town of Oshakati that do not currently have electricity. He said OPE is now connecting houses in the areas of Ompumbu Urban, Uupindi North, Uupindi South, Evululuko, Oneshila and Okandjengedi free of charge. To qualify, residents should show there is no existing electrical supply to their erven and that they are within 60 meters of an existing 400Volt overhead line.
