EDM made 390,000 new connections in 2023

The company Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) celebrated a year of significant achievements, exceeding its own expectations by making more than 390,000 new connections by 2023. This figure exceeded the target initially set at 350,000 connections, consolidating EDM’s commitment to expanding and improving access to electricity throughout the country.

The news was announced by the chairman of EDM’s Board of Directors, Marcelino Gildo, during a press conference held in Maputo. Gildo emphasized that this milestone was reached thanks to the joint efforts of the teams and investment in infrastructure and training.

During the press conference, Gildo stressed the importance of maintaining the pace of work to ensure that the company continues to meet the growing demands for electricity. He visited various facilities, including the Matola substation and the National Dispatch and Operational Distribution centers in Maputo city and province, to assess the readiness of the company’s equipment and teams.

This achievement by EDM not only demonstrates its commitment to providing quality energy to its customers, but also contributes to Mozambique’s socio-economic development. The increase in the number of electricity connections means more access to energy for homes, businesses and communities, boosting growth and productivity across the country.

EDM plans to continue investing in infrastructure and technology to meet the growing demand for electricity, thus ensuring a reliable and efficient energy supply for all Mozambicans.
