THE Unggai-Bena district in Eastern Highlands has spent more than K6 million to provide 40 kilometres of power lines as part of its rural electrification project, according to PNG Power Limited.
PNG Power’s director of rural electrification Clement Bonny said the district invested K6.3 million in the rural electrification project.
“The district’s viable rural electrification project has already covered 40km and you have supported PNG Power’s vision to bring
electricity to every home,” Bonny said.
