Sierra Leone: NPA unbundling completed

Issue 293 - 29 Jan 2015 | 1 minute read

The National Power Authority (NPA) has been replaced by the Electricity Generation and Transmission Company and the Electricity Distribution and Supply Authority (EDSA) with effect from 1 January in an unbundling aimed at encouraging private sector involvement. The Energy and Water Regulatory Commission will oversee the sector, enabling a separation of regulatory and commercial functions. EDSA will operate as bulk buyer. Unbundling of the sector was established by the National Electricity Law approved in November 2011. Boards of directors have been appointed for the new bodies, and staff from the NPA and Bo-Kenema Power Services have been transferred.
